Library & SGA Send Donations to
Soldiers in Iraq
At a book sale held in November
2004, the library netted $143.00 for the SGA.
Shortly after the book sale, library staff members decided to collect items for
the troops in Iraq. The SGA officers graciously allowed the library
to use the book-sale proceeds towards the expensive cost of mailing
packages. Due to the generosity of
faculty, students, and staff, we were able to send six large boxes of
toiletries, snacks, sunglasses, books, and pillows to Iraq.
