DURHAM, N.H. – Students residing in Williamson Hall at the
University of New Hampshire have just added a few more books to
their lives – about 2000.
The first-year students developed a community service partnership
with the Durham Public Library one year ago, offering their time,
talents and energy to help the library better serve the community.
The residence halls at UNH are each partnering with a community
agency for a long-term relationship as part of their focus on service
At first, the students assisted with book inventories and other
administrative tasks but they wanted to do more. Karen Newton, Williamson
Hall director, let the library know they were ready for bigger projects
this year and staff suggested organizing and running the book sale
“The students are organizing the sale and providing all the
muscle power to move the books, which are donated by community members,”
says Newton. “We’re looking forward to making this event
a big success.”
The library’s fall book sale takes place Saturday, October
16, 2004, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Williamson Hall, located
at 24 Williamson Drive on the university’s Durham campus.
Visitors may park without a permit in the B parking lot, which is
on McDaniel Drive off Mill Road, to attend the sale.
