FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (7/06)
Volunteers Will Be on Hand July 10 to Assist Book Donors for Upcoming Centenary Book Bazaar
SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary College Book Bazaar will hold an assisted-donation day on Monday, July 10, at the bazaar’s Book House at 108 East Kings Highway, across the street from George's Grill. Volunteers will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day to unload books.
The day will be the next-to-last assisted donation day before the annual Centenary Book Bazaar, sponsored by the Centenary Muses this year on Sept. 8 and 9 in the Centenary Gold Dome. 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 and more often at peak times.
The final assisted donation day will be Aug. 14. The annual book sale, which draws some 30,000 attendees over two days, will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year.
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.
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.
