For over a decade, the Campbell County Public Library Teen Volunteers have held a semi-annual Scholastic book fair. This book fair is run entirely by the library’s volunteer force, including the adult volunteers who help during the school day. However, after school, Teen Volunteers run the booth. The holiday book fair is particularly important to the youth of our community. At the end of the fair, the Teen Volunteers receive matching funds scaled according to the book fair profits, which are then used to purchase books to donate to youth service agencies in our community. These agencies include GARF, the Boys and Girls Club, the YES house and many others. This is one reason the fair is very important and why we ask the Teen Volunteers to each take at least one shift. Another is that this is a perfect time for you to do some Christmas shopping! We have a variety of books for you to choose from, for many different readers. Stop by and get some early- or last-minute shopping taken care of! The final reason the book fair is important is you can buy books! What other way would you want to end the year than by curled up by the fire reading a new book?! Join us at the book fair: Monday, December 5, 5pm-7pm; and Tuesday, December 6 through Thursday, December 8, 10am-7pm.
