The Christmas Toy Drive will take place from Wednesday, November 17th to Wednesday, December 15th, 2004. This annual event is held in support of the Salvation Army's Christmas Bureau. The Bureau's mandate is to provide a new toy for children of families in need of assistance.
Toys are needed for boys and girls up to the age of twelve. Most-needed items include baby toys, colouring books, family games, books and Lego blocks.
Over the years, the McMaster Community has generously supported this worthy cause, and we hope that you will contine to do so this year.
Why not start a collection box in your office, residence, department or work area and then drop them off at the nearest campus library.
Collection boxes will be placed in Mills, Innis, Thode and Health Sciences libraries.
Your support is greatly appreciated.

We are currently experiencing two problems using LibAccess in Mills, Innis and Thode libraries:
- Some Websites are not loading and the following error message apears: "To allow /connect? session to work, your EZproxy administrator must first authorize this within the ezproxy.cfg file". The Library's I.T. Department is working to rectify this, but as a workaround in the interim, login to LibAccess first, click on the "Search the Internet" link, select a search engine and search for the site you would like to visit. Click the link to the site that appears in the search results page. You should have no trouble accessing the site in this manner.
Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
