IWU’s Chadwick Library Hosts Tag Sale as Part of Renovation

Written by Theresa Rose on May 27, 2016

Mount Pleasant, IA – The J. Raymond Chadwick Library, Iowa Wesleyan University, will have a tag sale on June 10, noon to 7 p.m.. The sale is part of the major renovation of the library taking place this summer.

Built in 1967, Chadwick Library was recently announced as the recipient of a major donation from the estate of Donald E. Young, IW Class of 1950.  Young was a long time educator in the Henry County area.  Young’s bequest will be used to create at 21st century academic atmosphere as the library celebrates its 50th anniversary.

The tag sale will be a single day, no holds/reserves, and cash-and-carry event.. Some of the items included in the sale will include chairs for $2, tables for $10, and study carrels for $5.  Other items will be tagged with prices. Some library shelving will be available. All sales will be final, and items cannot be held due to installation of new carpet, so any items purchased must be taken that day.  Funds raised will be reinvested in the library.

The J. Raymond Chadwick Library will be hosting an open house for the alumni and the public later this year once all renovations are completed.  The event will be corresponding with Iowa Wesleyan University’s 175th anniversary year celebrations.

Chadwick Library supports the educational goals of Iowa Wesleyan University by providing collections, services, facilities, and staff to meet the needs of the Iowa Wesleyan University academic community, as well as the public community. It is home to the IW Newsom Archives, Special Collections, Archives of the Iowa Conference of the United Methodist Church, the Teacher Education Division, and the Office of Academic Success and Inclusive Support (OASIS).
