Fort Bend County Libraries is partnering with Barnes & Noble Booksellers to host a book fair, March 16-23. Proceeds from the book fair will help to enhance the library system’s Summer Reading Clubs for children, teens, and adults.
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 March 16, 17, and 18.
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 online at the library website, www.fortbend.lib.tx.us, and 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 March 16-23, 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.
Refreshments purchased at the bookstore’s café can also benefit the library. Other eligible purchases include NOOK eReaders and their accessories.
Staff from the library’s Youth Services department will appear at the Barnes & Noble Store at First Colony Mall to facilitate “Teens, Books, and Games” – an afternoon of teen activities — on Friday, March 16, beginning at 2:00 pm. Teens can compete in a Connect-4 board-game competition.
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.
