Half Price Books has always strived to donate books to as many worthy and wonderful non-profit organizations and schools as we can. After all, as our co-founder Ken Gjemre once said, “Books should fill our lives, not our land.”
So, once again, in 2013, we set forth with the goal of donating a million books as part of our Million Book Donation Project. Without further ado, we are pleased to announce our final total for the 2013 calendar year was 1,491,364 books donated.
We’re moving full-steam ahead with donations in 2014. To check out our current donation count for the year, or to request books for your organization, visit hpb.com/million.
We consider it a priviledge to partner with such great organizations in the community and around the world. It’s incredible to see what good things they do with the books we provide.
If your organization has received books from Half Price Books, we’d love to hear your story and see how the power of reading is changing lives one book at a time. Please leave a comment below.
