Weekend book fair to benefit libraries in Lafayette Parish schools

Posted: Updated:

If you're looking for a new book to pick up, three schools in Lafayette Parish are hosting a book fair at Barnes and Noble in Lafayette this weekend.

A portion of your purchase will benefit the libraries of Alice Boucher, Carencro Heights and J. W. Faulk elementary schools.

"We want to encourage reading with all of our students, and in order to have a strong AR program, a strong Accelerated Reader program, you have to have two things: you have to have books, and you have to have incentive for the kids because everybody like incentives, so it makes us want to do more," said Lizz Johnson, Instructional Leader for Lafayette Parish Emerging Schools. 

Barnes and Nobles will be open tomorrow from 10 a.m. - 9 p.m.
