The University of New Mexico's Staff Council is collecting items for the annual book and media exchange as part of Staff Appreciation Month. The exchange is scheduled for Thursday, July 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union Building, Ballroom A (main campus), the Health Sciences and Services Building Room 168 (north campus) and the Student Support and Services Center Room 1002 (south campus). The event is free and all are welcome.

Participants who donate books or media items will receive early bird entrance to the event at 9 a.m. Staff Council will also be accepting any old eyeglasses at the donation sites and at the exchange.

At the exchange, participants should bring their own bag so they can take as many items as they please. Any unclaimed books or media will be donated to homeless shelters.
