Donate your books to the English Language Institute’s lending library

April 12, 2017

The English Language Institute (ELI) is hosting a book drive to build its collection of reading materials students can borrow while working to improve their English skills.

From “The Fault in Our Stars” and “The Hunger Games” series to John Grisham and Janet Evanovich, books with young adult and adult themes will help the ELI expand its extensive reading program. The library welcomes both fiction and non-fiction titles, including biographies, autobiographies, science fiction, health, self-help, drama, action and adventure, fantasy, mysteries, and travel. Books with 200 pages or fewer are most appealing to ELI students, who are non-native speakers of English striving to improve their written and spoken English.

The book drive runs through April 28. Donation boxes are located across campus:

  • English Language Institute, 351 Manoogian
  • Faculty-Administration Building lobby
  • Old Main, Suite 2155 (Office of the Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences)
  • Welcome Center lobby
  • 5057 Woodward, Suite 3101 (Office of Educational Outreach)

ELI is part of the Office of International Programs, which leads Wayne State’s global engagement by creating opportunities that foster international education and research, facilitate the exchange of individuals and ideas that promote global competencies and citizenship, and provide resources that support the expansion of the university’s global agenda.
