Baldwinsville The fourth annual book fair to benefit the Baldwinsville Public Library will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, at the Barnes & Noble bookstore at 3956 Route 31 in Clay.
A percentage of the cost of materials purchased at any Barnes and Noble store on that day will be donated to the library. The more supporters spend, the higher the percentage donated to the library. Café and the Nook e-reader purchases are also included in the book fair total, but the purchase of gift cards, Barnes and Noble memberships, textbooks, video games and magazine subscriptions are not.
Customers shopping on that day must tell the cashier when checking out that their purchases are in support of the Baldwinsville Public Library, or present a voucher, which is available in the library.
People who cannot visit the store on Nov. 24 can make purchases online at bn.com/bookfairs (Code 10901015) from Nov. 24 to 29, which will also count in the book fair total for the library.
As an added attraction for customers on that day, the library has scheduled the following entertainment:
Music by Larry Serafini of Serafini’s Little Big Band (11:30 a.m. to noon)
Children’s Crafts in the Children’s Area (noon to 2 p .m.)
Van Buren Elementary Principal Michelle Crisafulli - Children’s Story Time Reader with Clifford the Big Red Dog (noon to 12:30 p.m)
Children’s Storytelling with “Raggedy Ann” Meg Van Patten (1 to 1:30 p.m.)
Baker High School’s “Company B Vocal Jazz Ensemble” (2 to 2:30 p.m.)
Soprano Elisabeth Kisselstein “Singing Books: Kids’ Books in Music” (3 to 3:30 p.m.)
A wish list of items that the library would like to own will be displayed in the store for those wishing to purchase them directly as donations to the library.
In conjunction with the book fair, a drawing for the newly-released Nook HD+ 9” tablet will be held on Nov. 30. Tickets are available at the library for $1 each or 6 for $5 prior to Nov. 30.
