Fort Bend County Libraries is partnering with Barnes & Noble Booksellers to host a book fair, June 7-14. Proceeds from the book fair will help to enhance the library system’s Outreach Services department.
Fort Bend County Libraries will benefit from purchases made online through the Barnes & Noble Bookfairs webpage throughout the week, or from sales made in person at the Barnes & Noble book store located at First Colony Mall on June 7, 8 and 9. Purchases of NOOK™ eReaders and their accessories can also benefit the library.
When making a purchase in the store, simply present a Fort Bend County Libraries Bookfair voucher — with the library’s bookfair identification number on it – to the cashier upon checkout. Vouchers will be available at all of the library locations. If you forget your voucher, just tell the cashier that you wish your purchase to benefit the Fort Bend County Libraries Book Fair.
You can also shop online at the Barnes & Noble Bookfairs website. From June 7-14, just go to www.bn.com/bookfairs and click on “Start Shopping Now.” Once your selections have been made, proceed to check-out and enter the library’s bookfair identification number from the voucher in the designated area.
Staff from the library will be available at the Barnes & Noble Store at First Colony Mall on Friday, June 7, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, to register children, teens and adults for the library’s Summer Reading Club. Members of the library’s Youth Services department will present a special Story Time for children beginning at 10:30 am, and craft activities will take place from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Random prizes will be given away throughout the day.
For more information, call the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677, or ask at any of the branch libraries in the Fort Bend County library system.
