Posted on: May 16, 2011

The Murphy Library is hosting  Scholastic Book Fair beginning Thursday, May 19, and continuing through Wednesday, May 24. Hours will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily except Thursday, when hours will be from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The Thursday movie has been canceled to provide the meeting room for the book sale.


The book fair will offer specially priced books and educational products, including popular series, award-winning titles, new releases, adult best sellers and more from more than 100 publishers.


In addition, featured will be the One for Books program, where kids can share the thrill of reading by donating loose change to purchase books from the book fair for new children’s books, kids who can’t buy a book, etc.


Scholastic matches monetary donations with a donation of up to 1 million books, which go to national non-profit organizations dedicated to helping families in need such as the Marine Corps League’s Toys for Tots Foundation, Kids in Distressed Situations Inc. and Kids in Need Foundation.
