Barnes & Noble Fundraiser

Book Fair Fundraiser

Book lovers who visit Barnes & Noble at the Mesilla Valley Mall Friday through Sunday, Aug 5 – 7 will be welcomed by the Friends of the Branigan Library who are staging a special event Book Fair at the store.  Friends members will distribute vouchers to shoppers, providing a portion of each purchase to become a donation to the Friends, and in that way directly support our local library.

Friends will also give shoppers gift bookmarks, as well as an opportunity to win a Curious George basket that would delight any child, plus a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card.  Information about joining the Branigan Library Friends will also be available.
