“Books4Cause offers a tremendous service by recycling books in the U.S. and making sure they make their way into the areas of the world that value them as precious treasures.  They are a delight to work with and we look forward to creating many more African libraries in partnership with Books4Cause.”

Chris Bradshaw, Founder/President, African Library Project

“It is amazing how Books4Cause has actually turned empty unused classrooms in primary schools in Kgatleng Region  into something  unimaginable on this world.  I have always dreamed of establishing libraries in our schools in order to cultivate a reading culture in our students at an early age and thanks to Books4Cause I have now realized that dream.”

“As a returned Peace Corps Volunteer and trainer (Cameroon, Senegal, Rwanda), I know how much books are needed on the African continent. I found the pick up right at my office made things very easy, with good communication via email and phone calls from both the main Books4Cause office and the driver. So go to your shelves, see what you have that you haven’t opened in a year, and donate!”

“I am so deeply moved by the generosity and nobility of this project. Never before did the potential of a book to be read seem so powerfully important. I am deeply grateful to the organizers who have taken this on.”

“Having Books4Cause pick up books from my office at UMass Amherst was very satisfying.  An appointment was made (and kept–on time), and a friendly man from Books4Cause took away several boxes of books that I’ll not need in retirement.  The whole operation was over in minutes.  No hassle.  I am delighted that the books will go where they are needed, and I don’t have to ship them or to locate good destinations for them.”

“The book drive gave us an opportunity to ensure that books we would no longer use would go to a place where others could use them.  Having Books4Cause come to our office to pick them up and package them was really helpful.”

“My colleagues and I were happy to be able to send books that we can’t use to people who can use them, and we appreciate Books4Cause making it easy to do.”

“I have donated with Books4Cause a few times and knew it would be a painless procedure. Everything went very well. It is very easy to donate.  I can’t think of anything that could make it any more convenient.”

“This is a GREAT way to get rid of books that we no longer read, and an amazingly efficient process of pickup and receipt delivery.  I have done this four times now.  THANK YOU!”

University of Pennsylvania 

“We love books and have amassed a huge number of both adult and children’s books. For years, we have been seeking a good home for books that we wanted to share with others. Books4Cause made donating them easy and gave us confidence that our donated books would do some good in the world.”

“Thank you for providing me with the chance to do something useful.  I get practically all my information electronically now, so most of the books on my office shelf no longer had significant operational significance.  However they were all very meaningful to me earlier in my life.  You have given me the chance to make these books meaningful in somebody else’s life as well.”

“High kudos to Books4Cause. To all other book lovers–give your books to Books4Cause. It’s so easy, and you know you’re making a difference in the War Against Ignorance. “

“There are no small number of causes worthy of support.  Books4Cause stands above the crowd as a highly professional organization that makes donating books extraordinarily convenient.”

“We have had the pleasure of participating in the wonderful work of Books4Cause twice, and each time we have made book donations every detail of the pick up has been handled both professionally and efficiently.   It is wonderful to give books ‘a second life’ and to be able to do so in such a meaningful way.   Thank you to all the folks at Books4Cause for the important work that you do.”
