Barnes & Noble hosts book fair to benefit Yolo literacy program

By From page A3 | April 02, 2013

In an effort to raise funds for the Yolo Reads literacy program and as a kickoff to National Library Week, Barnes & Noble is partnering with the Yolo County Library to host a book fair at its Arden Fair store Friday through Sunday, April 12-14.

During the book fair, the Yolo County Library will be on display and sponsoring two events. A special library-themed storytime will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 13, in the children’s department of the store, and a local authors panel discussion and signing will begin at 1 p.m.

Throughout the weekend, materials on other Yolo County Library events and resources will be made available. More information about the book fair is available at all Yolo County Library branch locations, including the Stephens Branch, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Barnes & Noble will contribute a percentage of every sale made during the book fair weekend to the Yolo Reads literacy program when “Yolo Reads” is mentioned at checkout. Shoppers also can support the Yolo Reads literacy program by shopping Barnes & Noble online at www.bn.com/bookfairs during National Library Week, April 12-17, and including the Bookfair voucher ID# 11035896 on the payment page during checkout.

For more information, or to support the Yolo County Library and the Yolo Reads literacy program, contact Assistant Yolo County Librarian Elizabeth Gray at [email protected] or 530-666-8084, or visit www.yolocountylibrary.org.
