Book fair Nov. 14 to benefit school libraries

Several WSU baseball players will be on hand to promote the importance of literacy. They will be attending the book fair from noon to 1 p.m. to read and sign autographs. As a sign of appreciation, various schools will be providing entertainment throughout the day.
Diana Bowles, St. Anne’s librarian, said, “The book fair will help our school by adding to our collection. We do not receive any funds for library books so we rely on the generosity of the Barnes and Noble Book Fair as a way to put updated books in our library.”
Any purchase made at Barnes and Noble on that day will count toward the book fair, including Café purchases, CD, DVD, audio books, and gift items. To receive credit, the book fair must be mentioned at the registers.
