Note from the library:

Thanks so much to those who are taking part in the Brax Spirit Cup sales. You may choose to buy some for yourself even if you don’t want to sell to others. This fundraiser is being done to raise money to buy new nonfiction books, especially science and biographies. If you do not want to sell, just return the sample cup! (MES sold these about 5 years ago, but this is the first time JMU has been available!) Contact Susan Morris with any questions.

Got any used toner cartridges? The library can recycle them. Just send them in to the MES library.
