BOOKFAIR: Planning to buy books or magazines this weekend? Shopping for the holidays? You can benefit public libraries at the same time! In a unique partnership with the State Library of North Carolina and the North Carolina Public Library Directors Association, Barnes & Noble Booksellers will hold voucher bookfairs in their North Carolina stores Friday and Saturday, October 24th-25th to benefit all North Carolina Public Libraries. More than $7,000.00 was generated from the bookfairs in 2002. Funds raised by these bookfairs help public libraries purchase new books and continue to offer the full range of their educational and community outreach programs. Vouchers must be presented at the time of purchase on Friday or Saturday, October 24th and 25th for a percentage of the sale to benefit the libraries. Stop by the News Library to get a copy of the voucher to take with you, or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will email the voucher to you.
