Bring a book to Classroom on Quad
Donate a book at Classroom on the Quad, Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Asbury Circle.
In support of Classroom on the Quad’s focus on immigration, the University Senate, Student Government Association and others across campus are collecting books to benefit metro Atlanta’s immigrant and refugee population. New and gently used books for children and adults, with a special request for bilingual dictionaries, will be donated to four community partners: Refugee Family Services; Clarkston Community Center; Montclair Elementary School; Clarkston High School.

“If each member of the Emory community brings one book, we will collect more than 13,000 books in one day,” said University Senate President Nadine Kaslow.

Classroom on the Quad will include panel discussions, Wonderful Wednesday lunch festivities, and a keynote address by former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno.
