Subject: [APLA] Grow a Library Update


Dear APLA Members:


As we continue to raise funds for the Alicho Wuriro Reading Room in
Ethiopia, I am thrilled to report that the Harriet Irving Library (UNB) mini
book sale raised $1,327.50 for the initiative!  I am indebted to my
assistant Julia Roy who really got behind this, and to student assistant
Alyssa Allen Gerwing who helped her.  Julia tells me this was a lot of fun
to do, not too much work, and people were delighted to know their money was
going to a worthy cause as they were buying up books on gardening and other
popular topics.  We had three loaded book carts in the foyer of the library
and the sale went for a week.  


And we're not done yet.  GAL Committee member Samantha Neukomm is planning
to raffle a Goody Basket at the APSEA (Atlantic Provinces Special Education
Authority) In-Service the week of May 20th.   We will be selling GAL
stickers at the conference, as always.  And who knows what else?


Thanks to all who have contributed so far to this initiative!
