Do you need a place to donate used books?

In the past, I have talked about Marianna Pascal's work with needy children in Johor Bahru.  She has worked closely with our school for many years and has distributed hundreds upon hundreds of gently used children's books and elementary chapter books to needy schools, orphanages, children on plantations, and more.  She is continually expanding her contacts and is currently looking for other schools interested in collecting used books from the school community and/or discarded library books.

If you are interested in connecting with Marianna, please email her directly (  She and her husband will come into Singapore and pick up the books.  Marianna is also very good about following up with photos and a write-up of where the donations have gone and how the people were affected by this generosity.
