Office Clearance Bazaar

As a way of disposing of all the useable “stuff” in our offices we will no longer need at the end of the summer, Harrington faculty and staff are planning a Harrington Office Clearance Bizarre Bazaar, Tuesday, June 2 – Friday, June 5, Room 230. We plan to gather together all those art supplies, review copies of books, office accessories, and anything which might have continued usefulness.

This room will be open for faculty, staff and students to view and take away those things they can use. Thanks!
