Donate e-readers to Phoenix-area libraries
Staff Report~ 4/30/2014
To keep electronics out of area landfills and to support e-reader literacy, those who own a gently used 1st Edition, Simple Touch or Simple Touch Glowlight NOOK e-reader can donate them at Desert Broom Library or any of Phoenix Public Library’s during the month of May.
Donated NOOKs will be added to the library’s collection and made available to the community for check out as part of an expansion of Project NOOK, said Mayor Greg Stanton, who suggested the e-reader drive to the library. Project NOOK makes e-readers available to library customers for a 21-day loan period.
“This is a great opportunity to support our library and promote reading—in all its forms,” Stanton said.
Donated NOOKs that cannot be used will be given to Westech Recyclers, a local electronic recycling company.
