Donate Used Books To Benefit RIFLI: RIFLI is partnering with Better World Books (BWB) (www.betterworldbooks.org) to collect gently used books. The books are sent free of charge to BWB where they sell them online. RIFLI receives between 15 and 25% of the proceeds. Here is a link to what is and isn’t accepted: http://www.betterworldbooks.com/go/library-acceptance-guidelines. We can pick books or make arrangements to get them to the RIFLI office (150 Empire Street, Providence).
Our Discovery Guides program was featured in the Providence Journal on November 15, 2012. RIFLI is one of three organizations nation-wide chosen for a National Center for Family Literacy/Better Books Families and Libraries 2012 Award.
