The Book Exchange usually has enough textbooks on hand to fill a 20 ft. shipping container, which holds approximately 450-500 boxes (12,000-15,000 books). Of course, you can send less than a whole container-full.
Some things to know about shipping books:
- The group doing the shipping makes its own shipping arrangements. We provide the books and help pack them for shipment. We can help with arrangements, but all costs have to be covered by the requesting group or individual.
- Children’s reading books (i.e. books other than textbooks) are always in demand, so please don’t plan on filling an entire container with them.
- You can come in and help us pack and prepare your shipment, or we will be glad to do the whole thing for you.
ALL ARRANGEMENTS FOR SHIPPING BOOKS MUST BE MADE WITH MARILYN
