CFCC Library Partners with Better World Books

Better World Books

Your CFCC Library has partnered with Better World Books!  It’s no secret that the library has a lot of books.  Sometimes we need to deacquisition materials from our collection to make room for newer materials and sometimes students/faculty/staff/community give the library their unwanted books.

Now that we have partnered with Better World Books, those unwanted items can find a home!  To date, Better World Books has re-used or recycled over 216 million pounds of books and raised over $18 million for global literacy and local libraries.

Want to do a little shopping for a good cause?  Visit the Better World Books website!

Welcome New Members!
