Better World Books – virtual tour

A Very Fine Library

Today I was pleased to attend a short virtual tour of Better World Books warehouse in Dunfermline. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to take any screenshots but as a longtime supporter and customer of theirs, I found the tour extremely interesting.

Better World Books is a for-profit, socially conscious business and a global online bookseller that collects and sells new and used books online, matching each purchase with a book donation. Each sale generates funds for literacy and education initiatives in the U.S., the UK, and around the world. Since its launch in 2003, Better World Books has raised $33 million for libraries and literacy, donated over 32 million books, and reused or recycled more than 397 million books”


A few interesting points from the Virtual Tour:

  • Books received at warehouse from libraries or donation drop boxes are processed and either sent to the Internet Archive
