BYU's Lee Library "vants your blood" at blood drive July 30

First-edition signed volume of "Dracula" available for viewing

The Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive Tuesday, July 30, from noon to 5 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Garden Court.

The blood drive is open to all university staff and students, but participants must first sign up by calling the Library Administrative Office at (801) 422-2905.

Currently, there is a national shortage of blood supplies. Fewer people come to donate blood in the summer, when demand is actually greater. Blood cannot be stored for a very long time, so banks rely on donations in the summer.

Participants donating blood will be able to view a first edition copy of "Dracula" as inscribed by author Bram Stoker from the Lee Library’s Special Collections, as well as blood drive-themed clips from the library’s Media Center.

For more information, including eligibility and donations, visit www.redcrossblood.org. Contact the Library Administrative Office secretaries at 801-422-2905 with any other questions.
