Christmas Book Drive!
The CLA Student Chapter at the University of Alberta is currently running it's annual Christmas book drive.
Last year the organization donated 251 books to local community partners and hopefully we can help them exceed that number this year. With the economic trouble the past year has brought, it is as important as ever to try and support our community.
They are collecting new and used books of all types to give to a number of local charitable organizations and literacy groups.
They are especially looking for new books for children (up to 12 years), paperbacks, aboriginal titles, popular fiction and current bestsellers. The CLA Student Chapter will be distributing the donated books to various groups including the GELA Community Bookshelf, Santas Anonymous and Prison Sub-Committees
Books and cash donations can be dropped off in the blue 'gift boxes' and collection jars in the SLIS office or the student lounge on campus. Cash donations will be used to purchase new books for Santas Anonymous.
