Children's Center to Hold Book Fair Feb. 22-26

Released: 02/18/2010

The LSU Alexandria Children’s Center will hold a public book fair Feb. 22-26. Proceeds will support the on-campus child care facility.

“Most of the books are appropriate for pre-school children, although we have recipe, religious and reference books too. There also are a lot of ‘gadgets’ that people might find useful,” said Susan Richardson, interim director of the Children’s Center. Books are priced between $1 and $10 with most at the lower range.

The Children’s Center, which carries a Quality Start 2-Star designation by the state Department of Social Services, is open from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. The center has a capacity of 82 children between the ages of 12 months and 12 years.
