Royer’s 12th annual “Bouquets for Books” event returns Oct. 28-Nov. 11. Anyone who donates a new children’s book at a Royer’s store Oct. 28-Nov. 11 will receive a free bouquet, up to three per family per visit.
The books will be presented to the public libraries in the counties where they were collected. What’s more, thanks to a Barnes & Noble book fair, the libraries can benefit even more this year.
From Oct. 28 through Nov. 2, books (not just children’s books) and most other items purchased at any Barnes & Noble store or online at bn.com/bookfairs can earn the libraries cash or Barnes & Noble gift cards. In Royer’s market, Barnes & Noble has stores in Camp Hill, Lancaster and Reading.
Each of the seven participating library systems and the independent Hershey Public Library and Middletown Public Library have been assigned a unique code for the Barnes & Noble book fair. Every time one of the codes is presented at checkout, the corresponding library will earn a percentage of that purchase.
Here are the libraries and their codes:
Berks County: 12191144
Cumberland County: 12191151
Dauphin County: 12191169
Lancaster County: 12191193
