We’ve joined The Sustainability Project!
It’s a green initiative created by James Bennett (Australian library supplier) in order to assist libraries in disposing of all weeded material.
Our older titles are often sold at our quarterly book sales, or donated to the local charity stores.
Discarded library books which are not suitable for our book sales will now be packaged and sent to James Bennett for either redistribution to communities in need or for recycling (pulping), with the resulting funds either being donated to various charities, communities in need or received as credit for our libraries to purchase new books.
The result is less books going into landfill!
