McEwen library reads "Class of
1991: Thanks for the Library
Endowment"
The class of 1991 is
embarking on a five-year fund
raising effort with hopes of raising
$25,000. The proc^ds will go
toward improving the library,
LaRose Resources Center and the
Media Services Dqrartmem.
The fund raising effort has
been organized and run Chapter
91, members of last May’s
graduating class. Members of
Chapter 91 began calling their
classmates early in the spring
semester.
The goal for the program is
to get 250 members of last May’s
gr^uating class to donate $100.
Drew Van Horn, director of
parent relations, said that fund
raising effort began last spring in
the form of phonathons and a
direct mail campaign. Van Horn
went on to say that the money
would be invested at a rate similar
to the school’s endowment Five
percent of the annual interest will
go to the library fund.
"We’re probably looking at
new uses of technology,” says
Head Librarian, A1 Jones when
asked how he would spend the
gift "Many of the things that
students are finding most helpful
in their research are in a compact
disk-type of format as well as
using a computer terminal or a
micnrfilm-microfichc format"
Jones’ comments reflect the
fact that books are getting rarer as
new technologies develop.
Jim Bush, a member of the
class of 1991 and now an assistant
Rob Whiteside/The Pendulum
director of Alumni-Parent
Relations, says that class
members have the option of
taking up to four years to pay
their $100 pled^.
Bush says that some members
of the class of 1991 are choosing
to contribute more than $100
while others are choosing to
contribute less.
So far the fund has $13,000
in it. Organizers say there is no
limit on how much money the
library can receive. Bush estimates
