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: https://ubstudentala.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/wnycpcbookwishlist.pdf
