$45,000 Donated to COD Library 2017
For the third year in a row, the Friends of the COD Library presented a check in the amount of $45,000 to be used by the COD Library for purchasing print and electronic resources and sponsoring literary events that advance student success and the curriculum. The all-volunteer Friends group held four book sales and other fundraisers to raise the funds.
Marge Dodge, President of the Friends of the College of the Desert Library, says, “The contribution is because of the dedication and many hours of hard work of our members as well as the support of area businesses and individuals who donate books. May this gift help College of the Desert Library to continue to play an important role in the academic lives of students in the community.”
Library Director Gary Gunther accepted the check with delight.
