Library Camp-Out a Success

by Archives January 27, 2009

Camping out in the lobby of the Webster library was an “amazing experience,” said Neeka Fedyshyn. She was one of two Concordia students who spent nine days living in a tent, raising money to build libraries in India.
Fedyshyn and fellow camper Sharone Daniel raised over $1,300 which will go towards building libraries in India. While they fell short of their goal of $2,000, Fedyshyn said the camp-out was still a success. “It was mostly about raising awareness, because it is the first year in Montreal.”
The camp-out was part of the nation-wide Live-in for Literacy, which began at Queens University three years ago.
This year students also participated at Memorial University of Newfoundland, University of Toronto, McMaster University, Queen’s University, Laurentian University and University of British Columbia.
Fedyshyn said she’s already planning for next year, and hopes to expand the event to both libraries.
“I already have two other people who are very interested in working with me and wanting to live in the library next year.”
