Final Week for Spanish Book Drive

books in a library

October 25, 2012 — In honor of Latino Heritage Month, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of English and Philosophy, and the Office of Equality and Diversity are sponsoring a Spanish Book Drive to benefit the Mahatma Ghandi Foundation in the small town of Las Terrenas in the Dominican Republic. The mission of the Foundation is to improve the community’s quality of life through service and development in education, health, the environment and the arts. The Anacaona Community Library, housed in the Foundation’s quarters, is the town’s only free library, serving both children and adults through its literacy programs.

  • 5th floor MacAlister, across from elevators
