Book sale
by April M. Bogdanski
Collegian Staff
The Joint Residence Council
(JRC) sponsored a book sale
last week , for students of
Behrend to return their used
books in exchange for money.
The students gave JRC their
books on consignment, and
were able to set the price of
their books. If the books sold,
the students who consigned
them would receive the money.
The book sale ended on
Tuesday, January 13, at two
p.m. so that students whose
books didn't sell could still sell
them back to the book store,
which remained open until three
p.m. that day.
Approximately two hundred
students participated in the sale,
and about two hundred books
were sold. JRC is still involved
in distributing money to the
The Joint Residence Council
wants to make the book sale an
annual event, primarily at the
end of each fall semester so that
students can buy books for the
upcoming spring semester.
JRC expected a much smaller
turnout for the sale, but they
were surprised at the incredible
crowd that participated.
Hugh Rosenblum, who
became president of JRC last
semester, is very happy with the
success of this first major event.
"The book sale was an
outstanding opportunity for the
students to buy and sell their
books at reasonable prices," said
The Joint Residence Council
is a programming as well as a
service-oriented organization,
and the book sale satisfies both
of these qualities.
