The Harriet F. Ginsburg Health Sciences Library is 98 percent electronic, but that’s the place you’ll want to be to snap up some good deals on an “original digital reader – a print book where you actually turn a paper page with your fingers.

The library is holding its first Fall Book Sale to raise funds to support a variety of library activities October 22-26 from 8 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. at the second-floor atrium.  During lunch each day, the sale will continue in the COM Café.

At $5 or less per book — cash only, please – you’ll be able to restock your library at budget prices.

Donations of fiction and nonfiction books are needed. These include hardbacks, paperbacks, children’s books, cookbooks, even magazines. Donations must be in good condition and not missing pages. Textbooks and journals will not be accepted.

Contributions can be dropped at the library circulation desk any time before October 22.

In addition to raising money, the library is promoting leisure reading, said librarian Faith Schafer-Moody.

“There are still a lot of people who enjoy reading with a book in hand,” Faith said. “We promote electronic resources but everybody needs downtime, and reading a good books is relaxing.”
