Alumni Festival Work Projects: Distributing CFL’s and Alt Library Cataloging

Jun 17th, 2009

The work projects for this weekend’s Summer Alumni Festival will be to hand out CFL bulbs to homes throughout Yellow Springs and to catalog the Alt Library collection.

Compact Florescent Bulbs are more energy efficient than incandescents. The Village of Yellow Springs purchased the light bulbs, and alumni will go door to door to distribute them. This project will promote greater energy efficiency, help support Yellow Springs in their efforts to become a greener village, and help to sustain the important connection that Nonstop has made with the village over the past year. It will be a pleasant and relaxing way to spend some time strolling through beautiful Yellow Springs, chatting with our neighbors!

Alumni will also work on cataloging the Alt Library collection. Sara Eklund Payne, a recently-retired professional librarian will be guiding the effort. The Alt Library will join the Womyn’s Center and the TWA/BAMN collections which have already been barcoded and cataloged, so your contribution this weekend will allow the entire library to be accessible online. The Alt Library was created and maintained by students and Community Government workers over nearly two decades.

The work project hours are: Thursday, June 18th, from 2PM to 5PM, Friday, June 19th, from 2PM to 5PM, and Saturday, June 20th, from 9AM to 11AM. Alumni should meet at Nonstop’s space in the Millworks building at 305 N. Walnut Street in Yellow Springs.
