Please join the AIA Dallas Latinos in Architecture for the second year of "From an Architect's Bookshelf"!
This book donation/library development program would provide local educational institutions with books that are essential for the teaching and research of Architecture but too costly for most schools or scholars to afford.
You are encouraged to write a note of insight or encouragement inside the cover of the book to personalize and humanize the gift to the students. You can contribute something from your personal collection or buy a book to donate.Donations can include: Architecture, interior design, art and construction books.
Your book donation will help:
- Motivate a young student to stay in school and pursue a college degree education; Raise awareness of Architecture as a career path as well as its profile to make the profession more diverse and attractive; Inspire the Architect's of tomorrow: With this program if we touch one student who will pursue a career in architecture, go on to licensure, and become an AIA member, that will make it a success.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank Mesa Design Group for their kind donation of 80 books, that are helping us jump start our book drive! Also, we are pleased to announce that this year we will be running the program with LiA Austin and AIA San Diego.
BOOKSHELF LEADERS: If you are interested in being one, please let us know.
Collections are July 11 - August 19.
There will also be a collection point at the Dallas Center for Architecture (DCFA)- 1909 Woodall Rodgers Fwy., Suite 100 Dallas, TX 75201
We invite you to take a look at this video “AIA Dallas Latinos in Architecture, From an Architect’s Bookshelf”, that depicts the soul and the intent of the book drive program:
Thanks to everyone that joined in the celebration at Corgan Assocaites last Friday, for LiA's first year as a committee of the AIA Dallas.
Corgan was a very generous and great host for all the LiA members and guests that came to learn more about the committee, and the future programs, like the sucessful "From an Architect's Bookshelf", a book drive that was launched in 2010 and that will be run again this year.
