Resulting from a collaboration between the Genesis IMC Agency (under the coordination of EMU Community Involvement Center and Communication Faculty, Department of Public Relations and Advertising Chair Assoc.

Books that were gathered and purchased for the event with the slogan Leave no book in dusty caves, share adventures were given to students at the Sehit Zeki Salih Primary School in Famagusta.
