20th Book Exchange & Sale
The Language Center's 20th Book Exchange & Sale was a great success this spring because many of you participated. You donated books. You bought books. You moved books and tables so we could set up on the first day and close down on the second. Yes, many people were involved including a record number of student volunteers. You learned how to organize an event of this size and how to help people find books they might be interested in. You sold a lot of books and it made you feel good. Volunteering always makes people feel good, and Amigos de Sierra Leona, the NGO we're supporting this year, was very happy to receive our donation. We made 453.07 € for them during our sale on March 11th and 12th.
