Recycle Books


My name is Sonal Kapoor and I am 18 years old. I started Rescue A Book in 2013 as a way to do community service, and maintain a source where used books could essentially be recycled. This project was meant to be a school project but I was not able to do it for logistic reasons. However the idea of recycling books appealed to me and I decided to continue it on my own.

​The mission of Rescue A Book is simply to get unused books and deliver them to people who can use them .


So far I have donated to many different non-profits and learned a lot about my local community. I want to be able to impact schools, hospitals, convalescent homes, etc. by expanding their libraries. I have donated over 6,500 books so far and hope to impact many more in the future.
