Friends of Morris Library seek book donations

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The Friends of Morris Library at Southern Illinois University Carbondale are now collecting book donations for their next book sale. 

The date of the benefit sale has yet to be determined but donations are requested now to ensure a large selection.  Collection boxes are located at: the Carbondale City Hall building, the Furniture King, Carbondale Kroger, Murdale True Value, Schnucks in Carbondale, Vic Koenig Chevrolet and Vogler Ford. 

Biographies, fiction novels, mysteries, classic literature and books about history, gardening, crafts, home repair or travel are particularly sought. Donations of books in good saleable condition are welcome but the Friends of Morris Library request no textbooks, outdated technology books, or materials that have damage, mold or mildew. 

For more information about the book donations or sale, contact Kristine B. McGuire at kmcguire@lib.siu.edu or by calling 618/453-1633. The Friends of Morris Library utilize the benefit sale proceeds for library programs and activities.
