The ESW Consortium has raised more than $13,000 to purchase Earth science books for the Austin Public Library. This fundraising began in 1999 when it was learned that the Library's collection of earth science books does not meet the needs of the public. The Book Drive is a collection of money, not books, given to the Library for their selection and purchase of durable, library-bound books.
Donations are received from individuals, local businesses, and state and federal agencies that employ earth science professionals. Texas Space Grant Consortium Outreach Coordinator and ESW consortium member Margaret Baguio coordinates the fundraising efforts. Margaret can be contacted at (512) 471-6922.
