Spring Book Fair Is Here

Join us for Lanier’s in-store Spring Book Fair. Purchases made during the event (including Starbucks!) all go to benefit the Lanier library. Books in the Summer Reading List will also be available so get a jump start on your student’s reading.


And if you can’t stop by, you can make online purchases from May 2 – 6. Just CLICK HERE for more information about buying online.
Finally, in conjunction with the Barnes & Noble Book Fair, more library purchasing will be happening at CPK just down the street. Purchases made all day on May 2nd and 3rd (including orders to go!) will count towards Lanier’s sales total.


So come on out and make sure you mention that, at either B&N or CPK, you are supporting Lanier Middle School.

Barnes & Noble River Oaks
May 2nd and 3rd, 4 to 7 pm

May 2nd and 3rd, all day
