Book Fair Fundraiser 2012 Redux!


First Book Oahu
Book Fair Fundraiser 2012 Redux!

Saturday & Sunday, November 10 & 11
Barnes & Noble

First Book-Oahu is getting another chance to raise money to help provide new books to organizations and schools that support underprivileged children in the community. This weekend, if you visit any Barnes & Noble on Oahu (Kahala Mall and Ala Moana), and decide to purchase anything in the store including items from the coffee shop*, you can provide a much-needed donation to our cause by using our Bookfair ID when you pay at the counter. 

Every dollar raised helps us improve literacy of our extended ohana and helps change lives by ensuring every child has access to their own books. Please print the Bookfair vouchers shown below before you go to the store. For a printable PDF version of the vouchers, click here.



Even if you can't come to the store, you can still support us by purchasing online. Visit BN.com/bookfairs this weekend and enter our Bookfair ID 10941441 at checkout. By doing so you will be helping give the power of literacy to local keiki who otherwise couldn't afford their own books. Mahalo!

*A few exceptions apply. See the voucher for more details.
