The IU Northwest student Anthropology Club is sponsoring the annual “One Dollar Used Book Sale” beginning Monday October 21st and running through Friday the 25th.
The book sale will be held on the IU Northwest campus in the Moraine lobby and runs daily from 9a.m.- 8p.m. (Friday hours are 10a.m. – 1p.m.).
Thousands of books will be available covering a wide assortment of topics, everything from fiction to education. All books are one dollar and quantity discounts will be available. Books will be continuously added throughout the week. Purchasers are encouraged to come early and frequently.
Having started as a small fundraising activity sponsored by the IUN student Anthropology Club, the book sale has evolved into a major annual event drawing hundreds of people to the IU Northwest campus.
The proceeds raised will be used to support the Clarke Johnson Memorial Scholarship and help plant cedar trees in his honor on the IU Northwest campus. Dr. Clarke Johnson, IUN Visiting Lecturer in Anthropology, passed away from heart failure this past February, and had been the recipient of numerous teaching excellence awards.
Part of the funds raised will also be used towards the creation of educational ‘discovery boxes’ for local school systems, field trips, and to help fund guest speakers to visit the campus.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the sale, or to donate books please call Bob Mucci at (219) 980-6607.
