During the spring semester move-out in May, recycling bins were provided by the Villanova Recycling Office with plans for “collecting, sorting, and donating to local charities all usable items left behind by the students.”
In all, Villanova students donated over 500 pounds of books that were then delivered to Falvey Memorial Library on June 14.
Renee Boyd-Shaw and three students from the Center for Access, Success, and Achievement (CASA)—pictured above—sorted through the donations for CASA’s Lending Library. The small library of books and textbooks are accessible for CASA students to checkout for the semester.
According to the department’s website, “The Lending Library has proven to be a valuable resource to help defray the costs of instructional materials that students may need for class.” More than 80 percent of the recycled books were added to CASA’s Lending Library. The other 20 percent were added to Falvey Library’s collection or donated to Better World Books for resale.
Thank you to all the students who recycled their books for future Villanovans!
