UB Student ALA is proud to announce a Book and Bake Sale on Thursday, October 29 from 9am-5pm in the Baldy Hall lobby, near the elevators.

All baked goods will be $1.00 and books will be 50 cents each or 3 for $1.00. Come on down for a snack break and feed your brain, too! All proceeds will go to purchase items for the WNY Children’s Psychiatric Center Library.

If you would like to contribue a homemade (or storebought, we’re not picky) treat for the sale, please email ubstudentala at to let us know what you will be making. Please wrap all baked goods individually and follow good sanitary kitchen procedures–wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands!

WNYCPC Book Drive Wish List and Update

Posted on

Thanks to the generosity of the UB and WNY communities, UB Student ALA’s  book drive to benefit the WNY Children’s Psychiatric Center is going really well. There has been a very positive response from WNYCPC and from UB and DLIS.

To recap, donation bins are available in the LIS lounge, 17 Baldy, and in the LIS office, 534 Baldy. We ask that you please do not leave donations in the hallway outside 17 Baldy unless they are clearly labeled as donations for the book drive, as without labels they might get thrown out.

WNYCPC does censor materials due to the needs of their residents, so if you are wondering if an item you would like to donate is appropriate, please email ubstudentala [at] gmail [dot] com. If you have a very large donation, or any questions at all, feel free to send us an email.

The center’s wish list has been uploaded to this site and can be found at:
