Barnes & Noble Book Fair to Support City Branches
Rochester, NY , 2011 – Rochester Public Library’s Monroe, Highland and Winton Branches will be holding a Bookfair at the Barnes & Noble store in Pittsford (3349 Monroe Ave.) on Friday, December 2, 2011 from 9 am to 10 pm.
Thinking of buying books, DVDs, music or children’s games or even a Nook for the holidays? Why not do it and contribute to a worthy cause? If you make your purchases at Barnes & Noble on December 2nd and mention you’re there to support Monroe, Highland or Winton Branch at the checkout, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to the libraries! This percentage will be used to purchase new materials for each of the branches. There will be a full day of programming at the store to make your shopping trip even more fun— multiple story times for the little ones, a real Knight in Shining Armor, holiday paper crafts, music by Elizabethan and ancient music duo, Bard’s Baroque, and more!
In addition, Sal Maiorana, sports writer for the Democrat & Chronicle, will be signing copies of his recent book Buffalo Bills: The Complete Illustrated History from 6-9:00 pm to support the library book fair.
If you can’t make it to the store on the 2nd, you can still support Monroe, Highland and Winton Branches by purchasing online with Barnes & Noble December 2nd-7th. Just enter Bookfair ID 10576619 at checkout. The more sales that are made in the libraries’ name, the bigger percentage we will receive back from Barnes & Noble, so please consider purchasing something on our behalf. Every little bit helps!
