We need your books!

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The Library will once again be participating in the Sustainable Living EcoFair.

We are hosting a Book Exchange – bring in your gently used books and exchange them for others that are new-to-you. Or donate them to the Library's ongoing Recreational Reading Book Exchange – we are always looking for new titles!

Everyone who participates in the exchange may enter a draw for an eco-prize.

And, get rid of your clean plastic bags at the same time! Swap a dozen or more for a re-usable Library bag.

The event will be held on:

  • Notre Dame Campus: Monday, April 20, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Roblin Centre: Wednesday, April 22, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For your convenience, books may be dropped off in the Library before the event.
