Cans 4 Books

Welcome to the 18th annual Cans4Books!

In addition to being a great way to raise money for your school library during School Library Month, Cans4Books provides a wonderful opportunity to recycle aluminum.  Participating in Cans4Books is easy.  During the month of April:

  • Bring your aluminum cans to A-Can Recycling at 3255 S. 10th Street.
  • Mention ‘Cans4Books’ and donate your recycling refund to the school library of your choice.
  • You can also bring your cans to Pyrtle Elementary in a plastic leak proof bag and we will drop them off at A-Can for you!
  • The prizes:  Schools with the top dollar earnings per capita will receive Barnes & Noble Bookstore (South Pointe) gift certificates:

1st place –   $75

2nd place-   $50

3rd place –  $25

Don’t miss this great opportunity!

Recycling is a great way to help the environment AND Cans4Books is an excellent way to earn money for your school library.

The Cans 4Books program has donated over $36,704 to LPS elementary and middle school libraries for the purchase of library books since 2001.

Cans4Books sponsored by A-Can Recycling and Barnes & Noble Bookstore (South Pointe) in partnership with LPS Library Media Services and LPS Recycling Office. Questions?  Contact Emily Jacobs at (402)436-1162 or
