UUCSC Community Activities


The Book Corner

The inventory of the UUCSC Book Corner is always changing. Stop by our spot in book cartthe Oneto Community Room to see what’s new! We sell donated books in good condition for low prices. It works on the honor system: a box to receive the money is on the wall. If you’re donating books, please place them in the box that is provided. Virginia Carter is the grand poobah of this enterprise. You can reach her at 789-6842 or vipcarter1@verizon.net.

The Joan Patterson Memorial Library

Our lending library, the Joan Patterson Memorial Library, currently has about 400 titles. David and Mary Fulton, UUCSC members and retired librarians, are cataloging every book on a web-based cataloging and social networking site called Library Thing. From our Library Thing page, you can browse the library or you can search for a specific book or a book on a particular subject. You can also review books and talk on-line with other book lovers.
