Do you know about TAP Books?

TAP Books sells pre-owned books online and uses the profits to fund other TAP services and provide jobs to those who need to build their resume. It’s a win-win situation, but we need the help of volunteers to keep the program running smoothly.

More than just books

Today it seems like even entry-level jobs require some form of work experience. It’s a Catch-22: you won’t be hired without experience, but you can’t gain experience without being hired.

TAP Books is a social enterprise that opened in 2018. Staff scan, file, and warehouse donated books in order to sell them online to generate profit. This financially supports other TAP programs. Its mission extends beyond simply generating financial support—it’s also about providing reliable work to encourage growth in job skills.  Staff contribute to the business in a variety of ways. With an open mind and an “outside-the-box” mentality, they have the chance to strengthen the program, gain valuable work experience, build their résumés, and the opportunity to convert their skills into something of greater value.
