SCIENCE FACULTY BOOK DRIVE - "TAKE A BOOK" Program
CUFSAA-NA plans to launch a "Take a Book Program
" that we hope to implement with immediate effect to help the Faculty of Science, University of Colombo.
Science, University of Toledo shipped a large number of text books to the Chemistry Department. In addition to supplementing the catalogue of the Science Faculty Library, the Chemistry Department has now established its own library with the books we sent.
That was the effort of a few individuals.
Collectively, we can make a bigger impact and extend this program to help other departments as well. How about carrying a book for the department of your choice when you go to Sri Lanka next? We hope to receive a list of books required by the different departments form the Faculty of Science soon and we will make it available to you. If you are willing to help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
In addition to carrying a book (or more if you wish to) when you visit Sri Lanka, we also plan to collect books and ship them to Sri Lanka. Those of us who work in academia have access to many textbooks that are disposed of on a regular basis and they all can be collected and shipped. If you have books that you would like to donate, please ship them to Dr. Saliya de Silva at 393 Valley Road, River Edge, NJ 07661. Alternatively, you can bring them with you when you come to the CUFSAA-NA reunion in New Jersey in September. We will make arrangements to ship them from there.
Thank you for your support for your ALMA MATER!
