CCU's Kimbel Library book sale to aid hurricane-ravaged libraries

Coastal Carolina University's Kimbel Library is hosting a book sale Oct. 12 and 13 to aid Gulf Coast area libraries damaged by the recent hurricanes. The sale will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. each day.

Proceeds from the sale will go to the American Library Association's (ALA) hurricane relief fund. Donations for the book sale, such as books, CDs, videos and DVDs, are being accepted through Friday, Oct. 7. The monies will be used to rebuild damaged libraries and replace books and other materials.

Donations may be dropped off during Kimbel Library's regular hours: Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to midnight; Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 11 p.m.

According to the ALA, more than a dozen university and public libraries along the gulf suffered serious damage. The Mose Hudson Tapia Public Library in Bayou La Batre, Ala., was completely destroyed, and 90 percent of the document collection at Tulane University was lost to flooding.

For more information on the book sale, contact Sallie Clarkson at 349-2448 or or Margaret Fain at 349-2410 or More information on ALA's hurricane fund can be found at
