CORE to help countries with literacy issues through book recycling drive

November 16, 2011

Conserving our Ranger Environment (CORE), a student organization at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, is once again sponsoring the Better World Books book recycling drive to benefit third world countries with literacy issues. The book drive started Nov. 9, and will run through Nov. 21.

Drop boxes are located in Jesse Dunn, room 119, in the Student Center and Education Center. Drop locations have large boxes with the colors orange, green and white.

The group is seeking any books that are currently not in use and may include textbooks, reading books, home schooling textbooks, children’s books, workbooks, household and gardening books and encyclopedias.

“Any and all books are welcome,” said Janet Valencia, CORE co-sponsor. “We welcome them all no matter how new or old.”
