Computer Science Club holds book drive and fundraiser

 Permanent link

The Computer Science Club will hold a book drive fundraiser for Worldwide Book Drive.

Worldwide Book Drive is a non-profit organization that works with organizations to distribute hundreds of thousands of books locally and internationally. They put books into the hands of those who are eager to learn but do not have the means. The organization gives the gift of education and learning to men, women and children worldwide.

In addition, the Computer Science Club’s collection efforts have rescued hundreds of thousands of damaged and obsolete books and magazines from landfills and turned them back into usable paper.

The Computer Science club is looking to collect gently used textbooks that are five years old or newer. For each textbook the club collects, it will receive $1 from Worldwide Book Drive. There are donation boxes located in front of the library, in the commons area and in front of the Center of Performance Arts. The book drive will last up until the end of August.

For more information, email Kimberly Poole.
