The Vise Library at Cumberland University will host a Scholastic Book Fair from Nov. 10 through 14. The safari-themed event is open to families, teachers and the community.

From Monday, Nov. 10 through Wednesday, Nov. 12, the "Book Fair Safari" will be held daily from noon until 6 p.m. On Thursday, Nov. 13, the hours will be extended for Family Night, when the fair will run from noon until 8 p.m. On Friday, Nov. 14, the event will be held from noon until 4 p.m.

"We'll have fun activities and great books for readers of all ages. Parents and grandparents are just as likely as our younger guests to find some great reads at the fair," Vise Library Assistant Amber Woodard said. "Thursday night will be set aside for Family Night and will feature contests, giveaways and a special storyteller."

The Book Fair Safari will offer specially priced books and educational products, including new releases, award-winning titles, children's classics, interactive software and current bestsellers from more than 100 publishers.

Once there, visitors can browse through featured books and learn more about the event. Younger readers, Woodard added, can even use the site to create a "wish list" to bring along to the Book Fair.
