This large neighborhood collection box is a place to donate books for literacy programs around the world.
Better World Books was founded in 2002 as a company that sold textbooks online. Since then, the company has been hosting book drives and collecting used books and textbooks through its network of college campuses and libraries. To date, it has converted more than 42 million books into almost $9 million in funding for literacy and education programs.
Through large green book bins like the one in Decatur, it also has donated more than 3 million books to literacy programs such as Books for Africa, Room to Read, Worldfund, the National Center for Family Literacy, and Invisible Children.
