Library Spring "Book-It" Event: Focus on Non-Profits


Once a semester, the Richardson Library sponsors a program, called Book-It, where guest speakers are invited to discuss or demonstrate topics that the student body has expressed interest in. 

The spring semester’s Book-It will focus on Non-Profits: what it means to be a non-profit/how they differ from for-profits/steps needed to start a non-profit and remain afloat/how a person’s faith integrates into their job/how to join the non-profit field.

The event will be on Thursday, March 30th at 9:30am on the first floor of the library.

The program will consist of a four-person panel of local non-profit employees, representing the diversity of the non-profit field. Each panel member will be asked questions, prompted by a moderator, sharing their experiences and advice, and answering any questions at the end of the program.  

Panel members are:

Betty Hukill

Executive Director

Historic Paramount Theatre, Inc.

Darla Harmon  

Executive Director

Center for Contemporary Arts

Samantha Manski  

Executive Director

Mental Health America of Abilene

Debra Young 

Volunteer Coordinator - Foster Grandparent Program

Department of Health and Human Services Commission

This program is free and open to the public. Chapel credit will be offered to HSU students.
