Books to Benefit, a Unique Community Service Organization
Dr. Mary Ryder and Ms. Ginny Schmult, will give a presentation describing the unique local service organization, Books to Benefit, at 4:30 p.m. Friday April 19 at the University Club in the Founders Suite in the Bone Student Center.
Books to Benefit is a Bloomington-Normal nonprofit organization passionately working to support literacy. Volunteers collect books from spring cleaning, downsizing and garage sale leftovers and conduct book sales in June and November. The proceeds of these book sales benefit local literacy programs, including STAR Adult Literacy and YouthBuild, McLean County’s literacy programs, and provide financial support for the Books to Benefit Community Service Scholarship award at Heartland Community College. Books to Benefit encourages volunteerism through community service and assures that works of scholarly importance and/or unusual publication history or content find appropriate homes offering ready access to these works.
All faculty, staff, annuitants and ISU community members are welcome to join us at the University Club from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. this Friday in the Founders Suite in the Bone Student Center. You need not be a University Club member to attend. Additional information about U-Club events and activities can be found at our website. Continued program support is provided by the Office of the ISU Provost and President. In addition, snacks and liquid refreshments are available at each meeting.
