MSU Libraries' Book Bonanza!

rescheduled for February 13th

Murray State University Libraries has over 2,000 new children's books for all age levels - and we want to give them away! More specifically, we want to give them to your school district to be placed either in your school libraries or to be sent home with children you deem most in need.

We invite you to attend the (rescheduled) Book Bonanza. Bring with you 16 students of all age levels to pick out 200 books to take back to your schools. Murray State University will provide up to $200 towards transportation costs, and the MSU Office of Regional Outreach will provide a boxed lunch for everyone. After your students pick out 200 books, we will have them packed up and loaded into your buses or vans to go home with you that day. Each student participating will be provided with a Murray State gift bag.

Please bring 4 students from each age group:

  • K-2
  • 3-5
  • 6-8
  • 9-12

Sponsored by the Murray State University Libraries, MSU Office of Regional Outreach, K12 Connect, and MSU Town & Gown. RSVP here by January 31st.
