GLEN — Alcorn Central High School will host a Community Book Fair beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 19-22.

The Media Club from ACHS will host a book fair from Scholastic to help get books for their library, according to Nancy Lambert of ACHS.

“The book fair will be open each day from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature a wide range of books for young teens and adults,” Lambert said. “These books will also include; mystery and adventure novels, fantasy series, sports guides, graphic novels, and the latest best sellers from more than 100 publishers.”

Parents, children, teachers, and the community are invited to attend.

“Student volunteers, dubbed the Crew, helped to plan the fair and will also help run it,” added Lambert. “From creating special promos and merchandising displays to managing inventory and assisting shoppers with their selections, Crew members learn real life skills while helping to make reading for pleasure a cool activity at their school.”

Lambert also said her students are working very hard to put on a great book fair and hopes folks will help them raise money for the cause.

Proceeds from the fair will be used to purchase books for the library at ACHS.
