FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (4/05)
Assisted Drive-up Book Donation Day is May 9 for Centenary Book Bazaar
SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary College Book Bazaar will hold an
assisted-donation day on Monday, May 9 at the bazaar’s Book House
at 108 East Kings Highway. Volunteers will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 2:30
Donors who can’t give on that day can take advantage of the large protected book bins in front of the Book House. Volunteers unload the bins at least twice a week, more often at peak times.
The Muses accept books, CDs, DVDs and videotapes in good condition. Condition is important to the resale value of a book. Not requested are textbooks over five years old (other than literature and history), Reader’s Digest Condensed Books and National Geographic magazines.
The 2005 Centenary Book Bazaar is scheduled for Sept. 9 and 10 at the Gold Dome on the Centenary campus. It is sponsored each year by the Centenary Muses.
Funds from the bazaar go toward student projects and activities that are not covered by the college budget, including student travel through the Carolyn Flournoy International Travel Fund. For more information on the Book Bazaar or to donate books, call the Book House at 219-3409 or Muses liaison Amy Giglio at 869-5136.
