Go Green at Hooray for Books! We're pleased to announce that we're collaborating with Eco-Libris so that customers can support the environment while reading books. You can elect to add $1 to the price of each book you buy - for each $1, Eco-Libris will plant one tree in a developing country. You'll receive an Eco-Libris sticker for each book for which you make a contribution! Read about Eco-Libris here.
