Summer book drive for worthy cause

June 21, 2011

Have a bunch of books collecting dust on your bookshelves? Stacks of books cluttering your office? Consider donating them to a worthy cause.

In the spirit of community, the ASU Commission on the Status of Women is hosting a book drive to help establish a reading library for the students of the ASU Preparatory Academy at the Polytechnic campus (middle school and high school). 

We are collecting a wide variety of new and used reading materials including, but not limited to: general fiction (adult and young adult), classic literature, young adult literature, and history and non-fiction texts.

The CSW Book Drive will begin June 20 and run through August 3, with drop-off locations at all campuses (list below). Our goal is to collect at least 400 books during the course of the summer drive.

A love of reading can make a huge difference in a child’s educational and personal success – and by donating to this project and helping to build a library, you can help foster the reading interests of students for years to come. Please consider donating today.

If you have any questions, contact the CSW office at or Karen Engler, CSW senior coordinator, at
