Book Drive a Huge Success

LiA-Austin volunteers got together, on the last weekend of August, to sort through hundreds of books and magazines collected during the 1st annual book donation drive, “From an Architect’s Bookshelf”. At the end of the day, it was clear that final numbers had surpassed initial expectations, as Austin architects and designers donated nearly 350 books and more than 400 architectural magazines. All items were organized, classified and carefully boxed for future delivery to local area High Schools (more to come on date of delivery). A big THANK YOU to all those individuals and firms who donated to make this effort a success. Thanks as well to all the Bookshelf Leaders at the various Austin design firms, who donated their time and effort to make the program known and successfully collected so many books. Finally, thank you to all LiA volunteers who participated during the planning and execution phases of the event. Specifically, THANK YOU to Maria Guerra, Paul Medrano, Michael Guevara, Carlos Valdez, Carolina Cantu, Alfred Mojica, Lina Murillo, Darrell Smith, Martin Barrera, Lamour Hudson, Trinity White, Rachael McDaniel, Manuel Morales-Cantor, Sally Fly, Kristina Schlegel, Elizabeth Humphrey and Lauren Vienne. We look forward to another great book drive in 2012!!
