BOOK DONATIONS FOR ONE STOP COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS

Did you know that one child in four grows up not knowing how to read (begintoread.com)? One Stop Community Christmas is working with the New Student and Family Programs office and the Office of Civic Engagement to collect new children's books this fall.

Students are being asked to bring a new copy of their favorite childhood book to Convocation on Friday, August 18th, and we invite faculty and staff to donate new children's books also. Boxes will be available in Lantz Arena the morning of convocation. Books can also be dropped off at the Civic Engagement office at any time.

BOOTH LIBRARY ADDS 387 ITEMS IN JULY

During July, Booth Library acquired and cataloged 387 new items. The list can be viewed here. These acquisitions include donations to the library, re-cataloged library items, freely available government publications, and consortium-wide purchases. The recent university spending freeze (due to statewide budget issues) has limited the number of new items being added to library collections.
