PaperBackSwap.com to Give Books to Elementary Schools All over the U.S.
ATLANTA, November 17, 2011 -- PRNewswire -- This thanksgiving season, the largest Book Club in America, PaperBackSwap.com, is once again donating over 25,000 books to deserving elementary schools across the United States. This gift includes brand new books which will be placed into the teachers’ classroom libraries so that students will have direct access to them or given to the students so that they have books to call their own. The books will be delivered to the schools right after Thanksgiving this year.
LaFrance Elementary, in LaFrance, SC was one of the lucky schools that received books in last year’s program. “The children were amazed to learn that people they didn't even know were doing something so kind as to donate books to us. Your generosity made a huge impression on these young children. Thanks again for the impact you are making for our future! Sincerely, The students and staff of LaFrance Elementary, La France, S.C.”
PaperBackSwap.com (PBS), is based in Atlanta, GA. It is a free online book club where members swap books just for the cost of postage. People join PBS by posting on the PaperBackSwap.com website good condition books from their bookshelf that they are willing to share. Two startup credits are given by PBS to start the member’s swapping. Credits are earned by sending out books to other members. Any available paperback or hardcover book may be ordered for one credit, and audio books may be ordered for two credits. Complete information about the online book club is available at www.paperbackswap.com.
PBS began the School Book Donation Program in 2009 to provide books for students because of the company’s belief in both the power of reading and the power of giving. The schools selected to participate in the Books for Schools Program are nominated by club members and based on needs of the students. PBS club members who wanted to support the program selected a school and donated their extra credits to purchase books for the students. For each credit donated by a member of PBS, PaperBackSwap and supporting organizations provided books for the school.
