The Friends of the Wesleyan Library held its annual Book Sale on Nov. 2 at Olin Library. More than 3,500 books were offered at prices from $1 to $10.  Members of the lacrosse team (see last photo) helped by moving more than 100 heavy boxes of books for the sale.

The Friends of the Wesleyan Library is a community of readers dedicated to celebrating and enjoying books of all kinds from vellum bound manuscripts to humble paperbacks to the latest digital innovation. The Friends raise funds to support the library’s important work and activities including lectures, workshops, symposia and exhibitions; Consitution Day speakers; cataloging of hidden or inaccessible collections; special preservation projects; the library newsletter and more.
