Help us connect people around the world with life-giving literature. CLC is collecting and distributing used Christian books to nations with little or no access to the printed Word of God.
Why We Recycle Christian Books
Are you looking for a great place to donate used Christian books? You came to the right place! Several years ago, we discovered that we had a problem. Many of our mission teams around the world that are working in developing nations could not afford to buy or sell books that were purchased at western prices. When the cost of shipping, taxation and currency valuations was factored in, our books were too expensive for the average person to afford.
At the same time, the internet was changing our reading habits in the West and people were increasingly turning to e-books. This meant that many people had books on their shelves that they were willing to donate and they just needed a good and trustworthy place. Today, we are shipping hundreds of thousands of high-quality “gently-used” Christian books to some of the poorest nations on earth. You can join us in spreading the Gospel when you donate used Christian books and Bibles to our CLC BookLink program!
How Can I Help?
The CLC Christian BookLink program is entirely staffed by volunteers at this time. We need people to help us sort, re-package and stack boxes of books. This role is ideal for a retiree or someone who simply has some extra time available in their week and does not have to involve heavy lifting. While we do provide training, we are looking for people that already read and love Christian books to be effective in the sorting process.
2. Donate Your Books*
You can donate your own Christian books and Bibles or do a collection drive at your local church. This is a great project for a Sunday school class or small group.
*WE ARE CURRENTLY LOW on shipping funds, so would you please consider making a financial donation to help us ship our existing inventory?
Shipping thousands of books is expensive. Consider making a financial donation to help offset the costs of shipping these books to far away nations. This can make the books that much more affordable when they arrive.

We willingly accept the following new or gently used materials:
- Bibles and New Testaments
- Non-fiction Christian books – Bible reference, Christian living, Devotional, Kids, etc.
We do NOT need Sunday school curriculum, magazines, CDs, cassettes, DVDs and videos. Please do NOT send any secular books or materials.
