HomeLife Academy (HLA) is inviting all book lovers to its book fair that will be conducted through Barnes & Noble on Thursday and Friday, December 10-11. Actually, you do not have to love only books to participate in the shopping fun and support this fundraising effort by HLA. A small percentage of the net proceeds from all of the purchases made during the book fair will be given to HLA, which will benefit the HLA Scholarships for Families in Need. This is the second year HLA has held the fundraiser. The event opens the opportunity for HLA families and people everywhere who want to support homeschooling by providing a shopping experience at a one-stop location.

Shoppers are not limited to only what is on the shelves at the store. They may also go online and shop from the large selection of products that Barnes & Noble carries, which includes CDs; DVDs; educational games and toys; gifts and even more books. With the beginning of the holiday season, you could complete your gift shopping for everyone with your book fair purchases.

A great shopping experience and selection is not all to expect during the book fair. HLA will hold an in-store event on Thursday, December 10 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble Wolfchase store in Memphis. There will be HLA counselors on-hand to answer your homeschool questions. Suggested book titles by HLA will be on display and available for purchase. Students are also invited to attend and will be able to participate in hands-on learning activities.

If this sounds like your kind of shopping, Barnes & Noble wants to make it even easier for you. You may visit any store near you to participate. Keep in mind most of your purchases*, including café sales (coffee, lunch and other food and drink items) benefit the book fair. Just tell the cashier your purchase is to go towards the HLA book fair.
