HAMPTON —The Children’s Room at the Lane Memorial Library will be hosting a Book Fair, sponsored by Scholastic Books. The fair, which will be a first for the Children’s Room, will be held on Thursday and Friday, September 11-12. The hours on Thursday will be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; hours on Friday will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The collection will cover a large age range, so there will be books for everyone. As at book fairs held at Lane Library to host Book Fair school, there will be special items for sale. We have the catalogue that presents just a portion of the great items that will be for sale. Come in to see some of what will be available.
The book fair will be set up in the Lane Room so that we can spread out and all of the great titles can be examined. Some of the items of special interest are books about Clifford, Junie B. Jones, Amelia Bedelia, Harry Potter and many more!
You will be able to purchase the items right there; it is not a time to order and then receive the books later, so start thinking about presents for birthdays and holidays. Come in and actually see the books so that the choices will be perfect.
The proceeds from the Book Fair will benefit the Children’s Room, so that more books can be added to serve the needs of our community. Also, volunteers are needed during the Book Fair to work as cashiers. For more information, or to volunteer, call the Lane Library’s Children’s Room at 926-4729.
