Posted: Friday, November 11, 2011 6:02 pm
The Westview High School Library invites the public to participate in this year’s Scholastic Book Fair. This year’s fair will include a variety of products appropriate for grades pre-k-12 with prices starting as low as fifty cents. The library will also be promoting a special program along with the book fair to benefit local teens. To participate in the program, anyone may come and purchase a book to donate to the Crossroads Teen Center, located at 406 Jackson St. in Martin, which serves students in grades 6-12. Donation stickers will be available at the time of purchase to complete and place inside the book naming the donor.
The public may also donate loose change and dollar bills to go toward purchasing books for the center through Scholastic’s One for Books program. All books donated to the center through this program will be matched and donated by Scholastic to national non-profit organizations dedicated to families in need including the Marine Toys for Tots, Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. and Kids in Need Foundation.
The book fair will be open to the public on Nov. 16, 18, 21 and 22 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with extended hours on Nov. 17 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
If community members are unable shop in the school, they may visit the online fair at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/westviewbookfair.
The library asks that anyone visiting the book fair sign in at the office to receive a visitor’s pass before coming to the library. This is an opportunity to support the school library and a local organization. For more information, contact Delana Smith at 587-4202 Ext. 209.
