A couple of familiar names are helping us write a new chapter in the history of our annual children’s book drive.
Book stores Barnes & Noble and the The Midtown Scholar are lending their support to the 2015 edition of Bouquets for Books, which collects new children’s books for area public libraries.
The event runs Oct. 31-Nov. 7 in all of our stores.
BARNES & NOBLE
58 S. 32nd St., Camp Hill Shopping Center
Barnes & Noble will play host to a series of book fairs to benefit the library systems in Cumberland (Oct. 31-Nov. 2), Dauphin (Nov. 3-5) and York (Nov. 6-8) counties.
Customers will have an opportunity to designate their sales on those dates to the library systems, which will receive at least 10 percent of the sales during their book fairs.
What’s more, customers will be able to purchase books and donate them directly to Bouquets for Books. These donors will receive vouchers redeemable at any Royer’s (with proof of purchase) for a free bouquet.
Also in conjunction with the book fairs, Barnes & Noble and the library systems will hold free story times:
- Cumberland County, every 30 minutes from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2, with cookies and a craft;
- Dauphin County, 11 a.m. Nov. 5, with cookies and coloring;
- York County, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Nov. 6, with cookies and coloring.
THE MIDTOWN SCHOLAR BOOKSTORE
1302 N. 3rd St., Harrisburg
The Midtown Scholar will have a Bouquets for Books display table at the front of its store, featuring some of the titles that appear on the Dauphin County Library System’s wish list. Through Nov. 7, these books are available at 10 percent off list price.
