Last year, the library collected 308 pounds of non-perishable food. Let's work together to improve our collection total and provide our community's less fortunate a wonderful holiday season.
In addition this year, if you bring a non-perishable food item to the Marx Library, you can enter to win 1 of 2 $20 Starbucks gift cards.
We would like to thank you for last year's collection and look forward to your generosity again this holiday season.
If you have any questions, please contact either Muriel Nero (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Elizabeth Rugan Shepard (email@example.com).

For the month of October, the Marx Library is offering students, staff, and faculty a trial of Readex's Early American Newspapers and Early American Imprints.
Early American Newspapers, Series 1 1690-1876 "enables researchers to explore essential newspapers from 23 states and the District of Columbia. Series 1 offers 340,000 fully searchable issues from over 730 historical American titles. Focusing largely on the 18th and early 19th centuries, this online collection is based on Clarence S. Brigham’s “History and Bibliography of American Newspapers, 1690-1820” and other authoritative bibliographies. The core of the Readex digital collection consists of American Antiquarian Society (AAS) founder Isaiah Thomas’ own collection of colonial and early national period newspapers and is supplemented by issues added by Thomas’ successors at the AAS."
Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800 "has been hailed as the definitive resource for researching every aspect of 17th- and 18th-century America. This incomparable digital collection contains virtually every book, pamphlet and broadside published in America over a 160-year period. Digitized from one of the most important collections ever produced on microform, Early American Imprints, Series I is based on Charles Evans’ renowned “American Bibliography” and Roger Bristol’s supplement. Including more than 36,000 printed works and 2.3 million pages, Series I also offers new imprints not available in microform editions."

What: a service that provides free books that do not need to be checked out
Where: Through the double glass doors on the First Floor North by the comfy furniture
How do I know if a book is part of the Marx Free Library?
All books that are part of this program have a red jaguar paw sticker on them that reads "Marx Free Library."
No, you don't. You can if you want to but you don't have to.
What if I want to return a book?
Put it on the shelf underneath the Returns & Donations sign.
Can I give you a book I don't want anymore?
Absolutely! Put it on the Marx Free Library Returns & Donations shelf.

Movie Information from the NEH:
When Mildred and Richard Loving were arrested in July 1958, in Virginia, for violating a state law that banned marriage between people of different races, such laws had been on the books in most states since the seventeenth century. But the Lovings never expected to be woken up in their bedroom in the middle of the night and arrested. The documentary brings to life the Lovings' marriage and the legal battle that followed through little-known filmed interviews and photographs shot for magazine.
For more information about the documentary click here.
The screening will be in the Marx Library Auditorium, Thursday March 20 from 3-5 p.m.
