The semester is in full swing, and so are the activities in UB ALA. Our bake sale was a hit, and those who attended the Wine Soiree had a great time. The UB ALA website is still listed as under construction, so continue to check out our Word Press blog at ubstudentala.wordpress.com. Also, remember the Bobinksi lecture, Life, Liberty, and Libraries in Iraq, will be held at the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society on November 10th. There will be a reception at 6:00 with the lecture to follow from 7:30 – 8:30.
This holiday season please remember that we are doing a book drive for those who need something to read. Most of us can go to the bookstore or the library when we want something to read, but there are those who can’t and UB ALA is seeking to help them. As you’re cleaning out and getting rid of old textbooks and novels, make a decision to drop them off in the various book donation boxes that you’ll see around the department. Also, when you go home for the holidays, ask your family and friends if they have anything they would like to donate. The more that we can gather, the more enjoyable someone’s holiday will be.
