GMS ROCKS 'n READS at Barnes & Noble on December 1, 2010

November 27, 2010

Miss Black Friday? You can still do your holiday shopping on “Black and Gold Wednesday”, Dec. 1 at Barnes and Noble and benefit our library at the same time! While you can shop all day, there will be special activities from 6-8 P.M.

1. Stop at the Welcome Center to sign our GMS R.O.C.K.S poster and get your name entered into a drawing for a prize. Prizes include free books, gift cards and coupons for other fun stuff.

2. Come to one of our reserved tables in the Barnes and Noble Café and let your teacher-elves serve YOU for a change.

3. Come to the Kids’ Section in the back of the store at 6:15 to hear holiday performances by our GMS music students.

4. Take part in our “Book Walk” game – sort of like a cake walk, but you can win a book instead of a cake!

5. Most importantly, show the Springfield community that “GMS R.O.C.K.S. --- AND Reads” !

Can’t come that night? You can still help by purchasing books or music from the Barnes & Noble website using our GMS voucher number (#10319382). Vouchers are available in the library, in the bookcase in the lobby and on the Grant website. Can’t do that either? You can at least spread the word to everyone you know. The more people who know, the more books for us!
