Phi Kappa Phi Book Drive

Contributed by Tammy Sritecha on 02/22/2015 

Phi Kappa Phi is a national collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines that follows the motto “let the love of learning rule humanity.”  In honor of this phrase, the Ithaca College chapter of Phi Kappa Phi will be holding a book drive on campus.  Book drives are a way to draw attention to the importance of literacy and gather crucial resources for community members who would otherwise have limited access to them. All books collected will be donated to IC Books Thru Bars, a student-run program that provides books to incarcerated persons in New York State prisons. 

Help make this book drive a success by donating a new or gently used book. It's an easy way to make a big difference!

  • Collection bins can be found around campus from Monday, March 2nd to Friday, March 20th.
