Books abound

Friends of the London Public Library are holding their annual public sale in the Special Events Building at the Western Fairgrounds.

"There is an excellent selection of over 50,000 books, magazines, cassettes and videotapes," said Carmen Sprovieri, director of community relations and development for the library.

There will be novels, reference books, children's material in hard and soft covers and the tables will be constantly being restocked during the four days of the sale.

The event begins tomorrow and runs until Sunday. All profits will be put back into the public library system for new books and updating collections, Sprovieri said.

Still want to volunteer?

This week is University Students' Council Volunteer Week in the University Community Centre atrium.

USC volunteer commissioner Steven Wong said they are trying to raise awareness of volunteering options. Unlike the previously held Volunteer Week which dealt with the exterior community, all of this week's organizations are on campus.

Among those represented are The Gazette, Foot Patrol, CHRW and TV Western. Sports committees, the Fine Arts Festival and Cultural Caravan are other activities in which students can become involved.

"We're looking for interested and motivated people willing to donate some of their time," Wong said.

The volunteer fair will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day until Friday.

2001 Summer Games seek organizer

A Chief Operating Officer is being sought to organize the 2001 Summer Games by the London Alliance host society. The lucky applicant granted the position will receive between $75,000 and $90,000 as well as a four-year contract.

They will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of organizing the games as well as being a liason with government agencies, said Libby Fowler, co-chair of the London Alliance.

A large part of the games take place at Western and as a result several changes will take place including J.W. Little Stadium being either renovated or rebuilt, Fowler said.

Correction
Contrary to what was published in the Sept. 30 Arts and Entertainment section, "Meet Me In St. Louis" is being produced this fall by London Musical Theatre, not Simply Theatre.

The Gazette regrets the error.
