Books from Birth programs throughout Tennessee take the returned books and attempt to get updated addresses by calling or emailing the parents. We also use these books to supply community libraries and non-profits so they can deliver them directly to children in need. Since it costs the USPS valuable time and money to have them sent to be shredded, we are simply asking that David Dillman, Tennessee District Manager with the USPS, reconsider changing the policy that previously allowed Books from Birth volunteers to collect the returned books.
