Samantha White, left, and Danielle Barron are all smiles as they peek outside a tent pitched in the lobby of the Queen Elizabeth II Library which they called home for 10 days earlier this month. Memorial was one of only four universities taking part in a national fundraiser for the organization Room to Read. The money will help build libraries in Nepal. The two also helped promote the group Students for Literacy@MUN. They lived in the library around the clock as part of the unique event and received donations from students, faculty and staff. As of Jan. 28, they had collected about $4,000 with donations still being collected. To contribute to their cause, call 737-3111.
