Reuse Your Books – Los Angeles

The best way to dispose of old books is by keeping them in circulation. There are a number of places to donate, buy, and sell used books in L.A. Some of these resources sell used books to the general public, while others donate books to places that need them like public school libraries. In essence, the less books in the landfill the better.
