For the seventh year, Collins Memorial Library participates in the INTERNATIONAL EDIBLE BOOK FESTIVAL. There are few restrictions in creating an edible book--namely that it's made of food and is inspired by a book. Past entries included such delicious titles as: Life of Pi(e), The Black Scallion (The Black Stallion), and The Wizard of Paws (The Wizard of Oz).  


Social Justice Department:
Collins Library is partnering with JuST at Puget Sound.
We invite participants and visitors to donate a canned food item for a special one-day food drive for St. Leo's Food Connections!

Pi Beta Phi Fraternity:
Collins is also partnering with the University of Puget Sound Chapter of Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women
- dedicated to philanthropic and community service efforts that will remove the barrier of illiteracy. Pi Beta Phi also partners with the Literacy Foundation, an international non-profit organization whose mission includes providing children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first books.
