Million Book Project reaches 500,000!

Hey gang –

Austin North Lamar Assistant Store Manager Ryan Zogg and Austin customer, Kwabena Ofori, receiving books from Half Price Books Million Book Project. Mr. Ofori sends the books to Ghana Africa to start libraries and share the love of reading with children across the world.As part of our 40th anniversary year (we’ve been around a long time, right?!), Half Price Books made a pledge to donate a million books as part of our Million Book Donation Project.  We are pleased to announce that we’re more than half way to our goal!

Half Price Books has already gotten more than 566,000 books into the hands of people who need them through various non profit organizations like the Girl Scouts and Feed The Children.  And with our upcoming Half Pint Library book giveaway events, we’ll reach even more people in need.

You can check out a full list of organizations we’ve donated to, keep tabs on our progress and fill out a donation request form for your non-profit school on our Million Book Donation Project website.

Happy reading!
