We know that you have them on your shelf or they're being used to elevate your monitor, perhaps even keeping a door or two ajar. We're talking about your unwanted books. Parting is such sweet sorrow and no one likes to throw away a book, but you're in luck... the CADC wants them! We're collecting books to pass along to students at our upcoming 2014 Student Conference at the University of Connecticut on April 5th.
