Centenary Book Bazaar
Assisted Drive-up Book Donation Day on July 11
SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary College Book Bazaar will hold an
assisted-donation day on Monday, July 11 at the bazaar’s Book House
at 108 East Kings Highway. Volunteers will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 2:30
p.m. that day to unload books.
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
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 318-219-3409 or Muses liaison Amy Giglio at 318-869-5136.
