Barnes and Noble Book Fair 2013

The Springfield Public Schools Foundation hosted a Fall Festival and Book Fair at Barnes and Noble Booksellers on Saturday, October 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase books for school libraries district-wide.

The public was invited to attend this day full of fun activities which included face painting, music by the Hazel Dell Music Club, Franklin Middle School Choir, Lanphier High and Iles School Bands, pictures with Skippyjon Jones, crafts, story times with Special Guest Readers including members of the Springfield Poets and Writers Club and a chance to win a NOOK HD!

The event was very successful in it's mission to raise money which will be used to benefit school libraries throughout District 186. The Foundation board members would like to thank all who participated through volunteering, attending and/or making a purchase to support the event. They would also like to thank the staff of Barnes and Noble, especially General Manager, Mark Steger and Community Relations Coordinator, Kathy Mackle Tiffany, for their work to ensure a successful event.
