Love Your Library Campaign
Benefiting all of New York’s Libraries
The New York Library Association has partnered with Barnes and Noble (B&N) stores in New York to conduct a statewide voucher bookfair that would raise funds to support public awareness and advocacy efforts to promote increased funding and appreciation for the valuable and essential roles our libraries play in our communities, schools and college campuses.
The statewide bookfair will take place during National Library Week on April 7-9th. To raise funds for the Love Your Library Campaign, Barnes and Noble customers need to present a voucher, (Click here) at the time of purchase on April 7-9th. Barnes and Noble will donate a percentage of the sale to the New York Library Association. Special events will take place at many B&N stores on those days. Please contact your local store or the Event Finder on www.bn.com for more information on events or to locate the store nearest to you. B&N stores are looking to collaborate with local libraries in holding events during this time period.
Similar statewide bookfairs in New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts have raised $8,000 to $13,000 and we hope that participation in NYLA’s Love Your Library Campaign will exceed those amounts.
