Better World Books Drive

Packing up your room or office to go home for the summer? Wondering what to do with your books?  Donate them to a good cause!

Stay tuned for the Library’s Better World Books Drive! During book buy-back, collection bins will be placed around campus. Books left in these bins will be sent to Better World Books, an organization that resells donated items with the goal of funding various literacy foundations.

So don’t throw those unwanted books away! Drop them in a bin, and feel good about making an impact in the lives of children and families.

Win during #wheelockfinals

How do you study during #wheelockfinals?  In your dorm room?  On a quiet floor of the library until 1:00 AM?  Do you prefer to be alone?  Or would you rather have seven buddies close by, sharing a giant bag of Cheetos?

The library is running a contest to coincide with our extended hours, so show us how you study!  Post a photo to Instagram with the tag #wheelockfinals, and you’ll be entered to win a $15 Amazon gift card!


And the winner is…

The new name for the Library blog is… The WILDCAT-alog! Get it? (*snort* *giggle* *nudge*)

wildcatalogThank you to everyone who sent in ideas! We had a great time sorting through all the entries. The winning name was inspired by the one and only Lyonel Traversiere! Congratulations! Your prize will be delivered to you shortly.

Name this blog and WIN BIG!

blog convo

The library blog needs a new name!  Can you help us out?  You can win a $15 Amazon Gift Card… not to mention lifelong celebrity, and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve left your mark on Wheelock College.

So you can get a good idea of what name might fit, here are the kinds of things we currently post here:

  • reviews and musings on YA fiction and children’s books
  • historical photos from the Library Archives
  • research tips and tricks
  • recipes and styles inspired by literature
  • news about events and displays in the Library
  • new books in the library, and other stuff you can borrow

Entries can be submitted by emailing, or by submitting a paper entry form at the library front desk.  You can even submit an entry by leaving a comment on this blog post.  Just remember to leave your Wheelock email (the address won’t show up publicly) so that we can find you if you win.  The contest will close on Tuesday, April 16… so get those entries in soon.  And thanks!
