Big One-Dollar Book Sale coming back to IU Northwest the week of March 17

More than 10,000 titles will be available; book donations welcome

The Indiana University Northwest Anthropology Club will host its semi-annual Big One-Dollar Book Sale from Monday, March 17 through Friday, March 21, at the Moraine Student Center, located next to the IU Northwest Savannah Center on the Gary campus at 3400 Broadway in Gary, Ind. The sale will run from 9:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. every day but Friday, when it will run until 1 p.m.

The Big One-Dollar Book Sale has grown from a modest fundraiser into a major event at IU Northwest, with hundreds of students, faculty and community members turning out to take advantage of great deals on books of all varieties. Approximately 10,000 titles will be available, from popular fiction and literature to non-fiction and many used textbooks, all for $1 each. Books will be added as the week continues, so book lovers should plan for repeat visits.

Discounts will be available for quantity purchases. All books will be 50 cents on Friday.

Funds raised through the book sale are used to support Anthropology Club scholarships, academic achievement awards and club-sponsored special events. The club is able to donate thousands of dollars each year for student field-research stipends and other academic undertakings thanks to the community’s generous support of this popular event.

Anyone wishing to donate books to the Big One-Dollar Book sale may bring them to the event. Those who wish to donate large quantities of books may contact Associate Prof. Robert Mucci, Ph.D., at (219) 980-6607, or they may notify someone at the sale itself, and arrangements will be made to pick up the donated books. Also, there are drop boxes located in Moraine and in the Savannah Center in which students, faculty and staff, and the public, can place donated books any time throughout the year.
