The Library is committed to making our services more sustainable and has made a number of environmentally friendly improvements.
Since 2012 we've been using Anybook as our recycling and disposal partner. We send Anybook our outdated, unused or damaged bookstock and they resell or recycle it. In 2019 we sent 2658.95 kg of books to Anybook, and they recycled 1207.15 kg of that (the weight of a small car!).
Anybook are a great source of second hand books - you can browse their store here.
We've also supported other initiatives to reuse and recycle; we recently made a donation to the Books for Abrehot project in Ethiopia.
