You can use your PBS Money to pay for Kiosk purchases, so you can convert it to credits in that way and then spend the credits on books. (I'm assuming you have more than $3.95 in there.)

I think we can now use them for the Market books.  But there is a shipping charge. 

In addition, we can now donate credits for schools year round. 

So many members have asked us how to donate to Books for Schools  (our annual program that turns donated Book Credits and PBS Money into free new books for needy elementary schools) "off-season" that we created the BooksForSchoolsCredits account. You can donate Book Credits there anytime, and when the next program starts the collected credits will be divided among the participating schools. Read more details about Books for Schools, including how to suggest a school for participation, here.

I didn't know that about the school book donation thing either.
