Notes on Barnes and Noble Fundraiser

Thanks to all the libraries that helped to raise money for the Great Stone Face Award by distributing vouchers for the Barnes and Noble fundraiser!  Many librarians played a role in helping to get the word out about this two-day event on April 20th and 21st – the beautiful weather translated into slow business in general for the Barnes and Noble stores, but thanks again to all who participated!

New Voucher for Barnes & Noble Event

The Salem store voucher for the upcoming Barnes & Noble fundraiser event is now available!  Just click on the link below.  To simplify life, I’ve also provided links to the other vouchers already posted on the blog earlier.

Remember, any voucher can be used in any store.  They are different only in announcing different events at the different stores.  Also, don’t forget to contact Sean Fleming at 448-2459, or email him at sean.fleming@lebcity.com, to volunteer.
