Help Celebrate 25 years of Internationalist Books

Help celebrate 25 years of Internationalist Books:

The volunteers at Internationalist Books and Community Center openly invite the general public to participate in shaping the vision for the bookstore as we commemorate our 25th Anniversary in 2006. We are looking back on the legacy of our founder Bob Sheldon as a source of inspiration, and looking forward to the next 25 years as a dedicated center for political change. We need your help.

We're holding an interest meeting on Tuesday January 24th at 7:00pm at the bookstore to enlist those who would like to be involved in the ongoing planning effort for many programs throughout the year. We're looking for former volunteers who have been away from home for a while but would like to return to short-term service. We're looking for friends of Bob Sheldon who would like to help us carry on with his legacy. We're looking for motivated community members who are looking for new ways to champion the rights of workers, and other underrepresented groups.

Planning has already begun for three central events, including a remembrance of founder Bob Sheldon in February, a day of action for social justice in May, and a party and benefit concert in the early fall. Come by and give us your input, or even if only to meet up and have a glass of wine with some old friends.

If you can't make it on Tuesday night you can contact us either by phone (942-1740) or email ( ), check out our blog at or stop by and see us 7 days a week.

I'm a johnny-come-lately. I moved to Chapel Hill in March of this past year. So, I wasn't here when ibooks was started in '81 and I never got to meet Bob Sheldon. But since the first week I moved here I've been volunteering at ibooks (and now I'm part of the group working on 25th Anniv. projects). I know that I'm preaching to the choir when I say this, but it's like a second home to me, a sacred space for the sole reason that its direction is molded by anyone who walks in the door with a good idea.

Hope we'll see you on Tuesday and hear your ideas.
