Book lovers who visit Barnes & Noble at the Mesilla Valley Mall on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Feb 24 – 26, will be welcomed by members of The Friends of Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, which is staging a special event at the store. Friends members will hand out bookmarks to shoppers, which will allow a portion of each purchase to become a donation to the Friends and directly support our local library.
Here are the hours for the Book Fair:
Friday, Feb 24, 4 – 7 p.m.
Saturday, Feb 25, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday, Feb 26, 1 – 4 p.m.
During the book fair, the Friends will also offer shoppers a chance to win a Curious George basket that would delight any child, plus a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card. Those who attend can also learn more about the Friends of Thomas Branigan Memorial Library. And membership applications will also be available for those who would like to join our organization.
Can’t make it to the book fair during those times? No problem! From Feb. 24 — March 5, you can still support the library with your Barnes & Noble purchase by ordering online from bn.com/bookfairs. When you checkout, simply enter ID 12065983, and a portion of your purchase will benefit the Friends organization.
If you plan to go, please RSVP on our Facebook event page.
The Friends of the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library appreciate the continued sponsorship from Barnes & Noble. Support from businesses and library patrons is important in retaining and expanding library programs that bring so much to our community.
