The $1 Used Book Sale is back beginning Monday, October 25 and running through Friday, October 29. Sponsored by the IU Northwest student Anthropology Club, the sale is held in the Moraine Hall lobby daily from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Friday hours are 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.). All books are just $1.
Thousands of books are available covering a wide assortment of topics, everything from fiction to education. Books will be continuously added throughout the week. Purchasers are encouraged to arrive early and come back often!
Bringing in more than $6,000 last year, the $1 Used Book Sale started as a small fundraising activity for the club several years ago. Today, the book sale has evolved into a major bi-annual event drawing hundreds of people to the university, many making the drive down from Chicago. The proceeds raised go directly into scholarships, field-school digging experiences for students, maps and archeological artifacts for classrooms, and toward funding to bring guest lecturers to the campus.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the sale, or to donate books please call (219) 980-6607.
