UNLV Libraries is participating in a campus book collection drive. The UNLV chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance, a registered student organization, is hosting their annual book drive entitled "Accio Books" to promote literacy, one of the Harry Potter Alliance's main issues. The libraries collection box is on the first floor of Lied Library between the Library Security Office and the Book 'n Bean coffee shop. Books for all ages are being collected.
The local chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance is part of a larger international organization, The Harry Potter Alliance, which uses themes from the Harry Potter books to engage youth in social activism.
This year the books collected will be donated to Read Indeed, "a 501c3 nonprofit literacy organization and the vision of Maria Keller, a book-loving 5th grader who wants to make the world a better place—one book at a time."
