[Posted October 31, 2016] There’s no gift like the gift of learning. Uni alumni are making that happen by buying books for the school library via a new program using Amazon.com’s Wish List program.
Coordinated jointly by Uni alumna and school librarian Tascha Folsoi ‘86 and the UHEF, the project allows anyone to go to a Amazon “Wish List” and buy a book that will be sent directly to the school. The “University Senior High Library” Wish List enjoys Amazon Prime status thanks to Folsoi, which means in-stock books will arrive at the library within two business days. However, you (as the purchaser) do not have to be an Amazon Prime member to buy any of the books.
It’s a great way to give a gift that will last for years at Uni.
The first purchaser of books for this project was Jeff Deckman ‘76, also a member of the UHEF Board of Directors. He purchased Arduino Robot Bonanza by Gordon McComb and Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future by Martin Ford, both titles requested by students. Additional titles in robotics are shown on the current Wish List, with titles in other subjects to be added soon.
All purchasers of books for the library – starting with Jeff – will be permanently recognized with a donor plate on the inside front cover of each donated book. Ready to help? The link to the Wish List is here.
