It's that time again - our bi-annual LSA Book Sale will be taking place in the Main Library Lobby. We'll be slinging books faster than you can say "John Grisham Mass Market Paperback."
In addition to supporting Library Staff Association activities, proceeds from the book sale will be donated to the libraries’ Paws N Relax partners, the Athens Area Humane Society and Madison-Oconee Animal Shelter. Helping the book sale in anyway means you’re helping lil pups and kitties! Books and animals! What could be better!?
The Creative Writing Program will host an "Open Mic" in front of the main library from 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Everyone and anyone is invited to share a poem during this event. Just walk on up to the mic and say your words. Let's flood the spring with poetry! The mic will be staffed by Creative Writing students.
