Literacy Council To Hold Fundraiser Book Fair


The Anne Arundel County Literacy Council (AACLC) will host a book fair fundraiser on Saturday, September 24, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

The book fair will take place outside Discoveries: The Library at the Mall at the Crate & Barrel court. Westfield Annapolis Mall donated space and marketing support for the event.

Readers will find a range of gently used books, including children’s books, cookbooks, bestsellers, romance novels, memoirs, mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction and more. Books will be priced at $2 for hardbacks and $1 for paperbacks. Shoppers can fill a special edition AACLC tote bag with books for $20. PayPal, credit cards, checks and cash will be accepted. Gift basket raffles will also be at the fair.

Proceeds from the fair will support the council’s free adult tutoring programs in Anne Arundel County. The AACLC is a nonprofit that transforms lives by providing free, convenient, and individualized reading, writing, GED, English as a second language (ESL), and math instruction for low-income adults and out-of-school youth who want to improve their skills. Last year, the literacy council recorded more than 10,000 volunteer hours, serving almost 200 out-of-school learners.
