Don't Throw Away Your Used Textbooks! We Want Them!

Kistler Memorial Library is sponsoring a textbook collection campaign that will run until the end of the semester to benefit the non-profit Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia. They are looking for used textbooks to to benefit financially under-served 7th-12th grade students in the Philadelphia area. Breakthrough's goal is to make high school graduation a reality for those students and help them to attend college, as well.

There is a donation box in the Information Commons in the Library for you to drop off used textbooks and class materials. Breakthrough will accept any textbooks that are less than ten years old. This opportunity is an easy way to help an organization that enriches the Philadelphia community. Your old textbooks could make a huge difference in the school career of a promising student. Please do what you can. Thanks!
