Our COVID-19 Statement

A Letter to Our ThriftBooks Customers

We continue to monitor and follow directives from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as related to COVID-19. Providing a safe and healthy work environment for our employees while also doing all we can to be a good business partner for our customers, suppliers, and communities remain our top priorities.

Below are details on how we are actively managing against COVID-19:

  • We have implemented enhanced daily protocols of cleaning and sanitizing all common areas in our processing centers, including tools, machinery, and all shared areas.
  • All workstations are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after every shift.
  • Employees are using latex-free or disposable gloves whenever necessary.
  • All visitors to our processing centers must wash or sanitize hands as a first requirement upon entering the center.
  • Breaks and lunches are staggered to minimize the number of people in break rooms.
  • We require employees continue to practice proper hygiene: washing their hands with soap often and following proper cough and sneeze hygiene.
  • All processing center employees feeling ill or displaying any symptoms of illness are being provided excused absences and asked to stay home until they are well.
  • All office workers who can do so are working from home.

ThriftBooks has always had a personal connection with the communities we serve, through our processing centers, our local and national book donations, our partnerships with libraries across the country, and with you, our customers. Throughout the uncertainty ahead, we remain committed to being a resource for you.

After you have taken the necessary precautions for your health and safety, and that of your friends and family, we encourage you to pause and find the beauty in the gift of time that has suddenly been given to all of us—time to connect with family, play a game, learn a new craft, study a new course, begin a new hobby, even read a new book or re-discover an old favorite. We think of books as treasures, but no treasures are greater than the people we hold dear.

Wishing you wellness,

Ken Goldstein
Executive Chairman
ThriftBooks Global LLC
