Free Books, Yours for the Claimin’

Book-Mountain1

The end of the year is looming, and we want to make sure our orphan books go to good homes before the snows begin to fall here in Boston.

Core has an inventory of hundreds and hundreds of used books, donations from members of the Core community. We invite you — students, alumni, and friends of the Core — to peruse the list below. If any of the books spark your interest, they are yours for the asking!

All you have to do is email the Core office, letting us know what book you want, and to what mailing address we should send it. (Or if you’re in the Boston area or plan to be soon, you can let us know that, and we’ll set the book aside for you to pick up in person.

If you’re feeling particularly thankful for the free book(s) from Core,we would be grateful if you’d consider making a donation to the EnCore alumni fund. By doing so, your donations to BU will go directly to support our community life programs, including the intellectual social activities of the undergraduate Word & Way Society, the monthly book club meetings of the alumni association, and the annual Devlin Award book prize for undergraduate writing. This donation is entirely voluntary;these books are genuinely available with no strings attached.It isn’t the amount that you donate that matters as much as that you donate at all. Alumni giving sends a powerful message to the University officers, that Core provides an experience for students that they stay connected to even long after graduation. To that end, even a donation of $5 is worth it.

These books come to Core as donations from faculty and alumni, and it is our pleasure to put them into your hands if you can give them a good home.
