FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (6/03)
Book Donation Day is Monday, June 9 for Next September's Centenary Book Bazaar
SHREVEPORT, LA—Monday, June 9 is the date for the third drive-up book donation day this year for the Centenary College Book Bazaar. Volunteers will be available from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. at Book Bazaar headquarters in Suite 108 of the Centenary Square Building on Kings Highway.
Volunteers will assist donors with their contributions of books, CDs, tapes and videos that will, in turn, be sold at the Centenary Muses’ Sept. 12-13 Book Bazaar in the Centenary Gold Dome. The annual event is a benefit for Centenary student projects.
The Muses are seeking old and new books in both hardback and paperback, except for magazines and condensed books, which are not solicited.
The monthly donation days have been moved from Fridays to the second Monday of each month, so that additional parking will be available in front of the storefronts that are closed on Mondays. The donation site is on the east edge of the Centenary campus, across the street from George’s Grill. Those wishing to donate books at other times can leave their books in the waterproof bins that are outside the Book Bazaar office, organizers said.
Each year the Book Bazaar offers some 30,000 books at bargain prices and draws thousands of shoppers from throughout the area.
