Events & Exhibits - Fall 2001
Proceeds from the “Friends of the Weinberg Memorial
Library Book, Plant and Tag Sale” broke the previous high
of $5000 by an additional $2000. The most sought after books included
hundreds of complete works in theology, philosophy and religion.
Hanging floral baskets were the favorite again this year, and the
most unique tag sale items included an oval mirror with a sculptured
wood frame, a large seashell adorned tropical Christmas tree, and
an oriental rug.
Thanks to the willingness of various newspapers and local radio
and TV stations who helped us publicize the weekend event,
supporters of our annual sale were able to plan this fund-raiser
into their schedules.
The success of the Book & Plant Sale is due to the efforts of
the Planning Committee, the Weinberg Library staff, work study students,
alumni and “The Friends” volunteers.
From January to March, our department made “house calls”
to pick up donated books. Over 10,000 bo
oks were available for purchase.
All books were donated by University faculty, staff and members
of the community who generously responded to newspaper requests
Library Book Sale a Success
Thanks to the participation and generosity of our University and
area communities our fund-raiser made a substantial contribution
to the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library Endowment Fund.
