The Family Reading Partnership of Owego Apalachin will host a bookfair at Barnes & Noble Town Square Mall on Saturday, May 7 from 10am to 10pm.
The fundraiser will include a student artwork display, poetry with student readers, storytime with the child’s favorite stuffed animal, finger puppetry, “Amelia Bidelia” and a performance by the OES Chimers.
Specific times to be announced.
There will also be a Wish List table of books for purchase and donation to needy families.
Funds raised during the bookfair and on-line will be used to support new Bright Red Bookshelf sites in the community from which children and their families can take free books to read together at home.
Also, books will be purchased for the Books to Grow On program which gives books to children at their wellness visits to their medical care providers.
Donations of books will be included in this program and in gift baskets distributed by local service organizations to needy families in our area.
To support these projects, customers in the Town Square Barnes & Noble on May 7 must indicate that they are shopping for Family Reading Partnership Owego Apalachin when making purchases.
If shopping on-line from May 7-11, customers should enter Bookfair #10433753 at checkout.
