Children's Center Bookfair, Oct. 25

Donations will help expand the library in the SDSU Children's Center.

In collaboration with students in the San Diego State Department of Child and Family Development, the SDSU Children's Center will host a fundraiser next week at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore in Grossmont Center. 

From 4-7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 25, SDSU Children's Center teachers will read books aloud every 30 minutes. Proceeds from all books purchased at the store Oct. 25–28 with this flier will benefit the center's library.
The Children's Center library also accepts book donations and a wish list can be found online. All donations are tax-deductible.
The center is also partnering with BJ's Brewhouse in Grossmont Center for a fundraiser to benefit the Children's Center library. BJ's will donate 15% of the proceeds from any purchase made from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 25, with this flier (opens PDF; some restrictions apply). 
Children's Center library 
Donations will be used in the newly renovated children's library located in the back of the SDSU Children's Center hallway, near the piano. A group of child and family development students has recently upgraded the library thanks to a Presidential Leadership Grant.
Recent upgrades include a new drop box, doorway, lighting and furniture. Future updates include an electronic check-out system and a new rug for small classroom groups to use when visiting the library.
