National Library Week, Part II

The Alexandria Campus Library continued its celebration of National Library Week with another of its much anticipated Book Sales.

At least twice per year (usually once in spring during National Library Week and once in the autumn) the Library holds a large book sale somewhere on campus. This year the sale took place in the Bisdorf lobby, right outside the Library front doors.

Books for the sale are donated from NOVA students, faculty, staff and library users from the Alexandria community (books purchased for the Library collection cannot be sold in book sales). Proceeds from the sales support purchase of new Library materials, Library functions and events like Late Night Study Breaks or other refreshments.

Library book sales have become popular campus events in the last few years. The sale yielded $350 this year -- thanks to all who came out to support the Library!

I have discrete mathematics textbooks to donate. Any need for them?
