The event raised money for both the Brooklyn Public Library as well as global literacy initiatives through Better World Books’ model.
This was the fourth year of the “Great American Book Drive” and this year, the drive collected 300 boxes of books. The books collected will be sold online to raise money for the Brooklyn Public Library System.
The Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) is an independent library system for the 2.5 million residents of Brooklyn. It is the fifth largest library system in the United States with 60 neighborhood libraries. BPL offers free programs and services for all ages and stages of life, including a huge selection of books in more than 30 languages, author talks, job search help, literacy programs, public computers and the largest WiFi network in the borough.
