Our Environment

We at Glasgow Kelvin College Library have had an incredible experience working with BetterWorld Books. Their boxes were the perfect solution for a library book donation program.

Our staff and students were able to easily fill the boxes with used and unwanted books . We then send them off to BetterWorld to be reused and recycled. Thanks to BetterWorld Books, our library has been able to make a positive impact on the environment and support literacy programmes.

We highly recommend their services to any library or organization looking to make a difference.
