Statewide Book Fair to Benefit NH Teen Readers

Just starting your holiday list? Don't forget books fit all sizes! You can finish your holiday shopping and benefit your local teens at the same time on December 2nd and 3rd. The Barnes & Noble bookstores in Salem, Nashua, Manchester, and Newington have paired up with New Hampshire Libraries to benefit teen readers in the state. All Barnes and Noble stores in NH will be holding a statewide book fair to benefit the New Hampshire Library Association's teen reading initiatives, most prominently the new Flume Award. Every library in the state will be distributing coupons to use at any Barnes and Noble Store on December 2 and 3rd. The coupon is not a discount coupon, but it will raise money for New Hampshire Libraries. At its most basic, the bookfair comes down to this: 20-25% of all purchases made with library coupons on December 2nd and 3rd at all four Barnes and Noble Stores statewide will be awarded to the New Hampshire Library Association, and the Association will distribute it to the Young Adult Section in support of their activities with teens and their promotion of The Flume: NH Teen Readers' Choice Award. There will be promotional activities at each Barnes & Noble on those days; author visits, story times, and the like. You do not have to belong to any library in order to participate. Go to any public library and receive as many coupons as you wish, or download them from our library's website (pdf format). Check your local Barnes and Noble store for a list of activities.
