Brandywine Science Club Goes Green with Book Drive

3/11/2011 —

In the spirit of going green, the Penn State Brandywine Science Club is collecting used or unused textbooks and books of any kind until April 1 and is working with a few organizations, including Better World Books, to raise funds.

Club organizers have been working with members of the campus Sustainability Committee in order to promote efforts that accomplish the "greening-up" of the Brandywine campus environment. Recycling these books for resale or reuse around the world is something in which the entire campus community can engage. A portion of the proceeds will be used for science and astronomy activities on and off campus.

Collection bins (labeled TEXTBOOK DRIVE) will be placed at the entrances of the Main Building, Tomezsko Building, Vairo Library and Lion's Den in the Commons Building. Textbooks older than 10 years cannot be accepted.
