12th Annual Book Sale March 24 - March 26!

The Friends of the Bloomsburg University Library Association (FOBULA) will be holding their 12th Annual Book Sale, which begins March 24 and runs to Monday, March 26 in the Andruss Library Schweiker Room.  The book sale is their largest fundraiser, bringing in $22,000 in the first eleven years, which has gone toward a number of special projects, two of which are the digitization and preservation of local and university historic materials and providing textbook scholarships to deserving students.
FOBULA is accepting donations of books, CDs, DVDs, video tapes, cassettes and even records.  The items can be brought to the Andruss Library Circulation Desk, and if you have a large number that need to be picked up please contact Bob Dunkelberger at 389-4210 or by email (rdunkelb {at} bloomu {dot} edu).  The Friends are looking for all types of books, both fiction and nonfiction, in GOOD condition, that would appeal to a general audience, in addition to movies and music.  Items that do not sell well they would like to discourage include old textbooks (before 2000), magazines, journals, encyclopedias and Reader's Digest condensed books.
The pre-sale for members only is Saturday, March 24 from noon-1, with the regular sale from 1-5.  Come to the Friends’ reception at 11:30 or join at the door (only $30 for 3 years)!
A special thanks to Art and Art History Faculty Emeritus Gary Clark for the design of this year’s flyer.
