Line Production Supervisor
- Toledo, OH
We fundamentally believe that books exist to be read. Yet, many books collect dust on shelves, or live in darkened boxes. Even worse, it’s estimated that more than 2 billion pounds of books become waste each year. We help books achieve their greatest purpose by collecting and reselling them to other readers, donating books to those in need, or recycling used books to become another useful good with a new story to tell.
