Be A Part of the Story – Library Wish List at Barnes & Noble:
Wondering how you can contribute to the expansion and renovation of the library, if you haven’t had a chance already? Purchase a wish list item on display at the Augusta Barnes & Noble in May. The store is located at 9 Marketplace Drive in Augusta. Their hours are Sun 10-9, and Mon-Sat 9-10. Your contribution to this once in a lifetime project will be honored with a bookplate inside the item of purchase, and library users will be able to borrow and enjoy the item you purchased. All you need to do is choose an item on display, purchase it and bring it to the library. Please let library staff know it is a wish list item from Barnes and Noble and we will take care of the rest.
