Rotary Book Fair

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Barnes and Noble Booksellers at the Cherry Vale Mall

A portion of all the proceeds at the Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Rockford will go to Rockford Rotary. Those funds will be used to buy books for second-graders in the Rockford School District. There will be "celebrity readers" reading from their favorite children's books, including 23 News This Morning anchor Andy Gannon.

There will be attendance prize drawings with no purchase necessary. The prizes include a Fred VanVleet autographed poster, a Fred VanVleet bobblehead, a special edition Green Bay Packers championship football autographed by Packers defensive lineman Dean Lowry of Rockford, an autographed Danica Patrick Indy 500 card, Rockford Ice Hogs tickets and paraphernalia, and Chicago White Sox tickets for the 2020 season. Students from the UIC College of Pharmacy in Rockford will be on hand for blood pressure testing. And you can buy some goodies at the Barnes and Noble Café including a Rotary Chocolate Croissant, a Rotary Grilled Cheese or a Rotary Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Bring the kids and grandkids and get some of your holiday shopping done early.
