32nd annual Centenary Book Bazaar comes to Gold Dome September 7 and 8
SHREVEPORT, LA — The 32nd annual Centenary Book Bazaar sponsored by the Centenary Muses opens Friday, September 7 at the College’s Gold Dome and continues Saturday, September 8. Over 80,000 items will be available for purchase on Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
“The Muses have created an event that has become an important community tradition,” says David Williams, Director of Development Services and liaison to the Muses. “The Book Bazaar is where every book lover wants to be, and the funds that it generates have really made a difference in the life of Centenary College.”
The Book Bazaar is organized and sponsored by the Muses, a volunteer group dedicated to funding projects and programs for Centenary students. The Bazaar has raised more than $1 million for the College, and the Muses have funded projects that touch all aspects of student life, from academics and athletics to student government and the performing arts.
The 2018 Book Bazaar will again offer over 50 categories of paperback books, hardback books, DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, cassette tapes, and puzzles. One section is devoted entirely to books found on local middle and high school reading lists, with required titles ranging in price from 25 cents to $1.25.
Patrons should bring bags or boxes to carry out their books. Carryout assistance is available. Cash or check is accepted. On Saturday, all items are half-price after 12:30 p.m.
