Contact: Western Washington University Map Collection staff at (360) 650-3272 or mapcollection@wwu.edu.

BELLINGHAM – Western Libraries is consolidating its map collection and will be giving away surplus maps and atlases from noon until 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct.16 and Thursday, Oct. 17 in Western’s Wilson Library, 4th floor central.

The giveaway event is free and open to the public.

These maps were received through depository or similar agreements and therefore Western cannot sell them, but they are free for the taking. They already have been offered to other libraries.

The Map Collection is located in Wilson Library Room 170 and is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday. It contains more than 100,000 maps with an emphasis on the Pacific Northwest.

For more information about the giveaway, contact Map Collection staff at (360) 650-3272 or at mapcollection@wwu.edu.
