35th Centenary Book Bazaar is September 9 and 10
SHREVEPORT, LA — The 35th Centenary Book Bazaar sponsored by the Centenary Muses opens Friday, September 9, at the College’s Fitness Center and continues Saturday, September 10. 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.
“We are excited to have the Book Bazaar back on the regular schedule again,” says David Williams, Director of Development Services and liaison to the Muses. “It’s been a crazy few years, so it’s nice to be back. We are in the new location – the Centenary Fitness Center – for the second year, but the schedule is the same and we have lots of wonderful books to sell.”
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 fall 2022 Book Bazaar will again offer over 50 categories of paperback books, hardback books, DVDs, CDs, 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 1:00 p.m..
