Library holds second book sale

 Roughly 1,600 books are for sale through the end of May as part of the Will Alexander Library’s second annual fundraiser for library supplies, according to Melissa Dellihoue, cataloging assistant.


Some 20 days into the sale (March 22), the library had sole 50 books, Dellihoue said. The sale began March 3 and runs each weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. near the library entrance next to the information desk.


Books/CD series are $3; hardcover books are $2 and paperbacks are $1. The books are donations from the general public, mostly history-related. Other subjects include American literature and international relations.


Dellihoue said that if every student would “come and by one book, that would help the library a lot.”


She said the money will help purchase library supplies, including paper and writing utensils.


The library’s first sale last year collected $425 for 576 books, she said.
