Drive-up Book Donation Day is Friday, May 10
For Next September's Centenary Book Bazaar 

SHREVEPORT, LA--The Centenary Muses will hold their next drive-up book donation day for the Centenary College Book Bazaar on Friday, May 10, with volunteers located at the new collection location.

Look for the signs along Kings Highway, directing book donors to the drop-off tent. Book Bazaar headquarters are now located in Suite 108 of the Centenary Square Building on Kings Highway, with the donation tent located nearby at the corner of Oak Street and Kings.  Centenary Square is located between Woodlawn and Oak Streets, across the street from George's Grill.

Volunteers will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to assist donors with their contributions of books, CDs, tapes and videos that will, in turn, be sold at the Sept. 13-14 Book Bazaar. The annual event is a benefit for Centenary students. 

Organizers are seeking old and new books in both hardback and paperback, except for magazines and condensed books, which are not solicited.

Those wishing to donate books at times other than the monthly drive-up donation days can leave their books in the waterproof bins that are outside new location, organizers said. 

The 16th annual Centenary College Book Bazaar will be held in the Gold Dome.  The sale, which draws thousands of shoppers, is expected to offer more than 30,000 books at bargain prices.  It is sponsored by the Centenary Muses.
