Nov. 8, 2013

What's a library without books? Even though its grand opening was in September, the Crozet Library is still in need of books.

The library's goal is to reach 75,000 books, but when at the opening the library only about 41,000. The Barnes & Noble in Barracks Road Shopping Center will donate a percentage of its sales on Nov. 8-10 to the Crozet Library. Patrons can also buy books that will to go directly to the library.

"Not just children's books. They are looking for fiction and non-fiction, teen books, both fiction and non-fiction. What's really popular is cookbooks, history books. Best sellers are of course are a given that they would want those," said Barnes and Noble Community Relations Manager, Sandra Cararo.

The fundraiser runs Friday to Sunday. Barnes and Noble will also be hosting a book signing and story hour for the library Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
