We will be hosting a huge clearance book sale on Saturday May 6th from 10am to 5pm at Train Station Park to raise money for schools in the city that were hardest hit by the flooding last August. Thousands of books representing a range of interests and suited for adult and child readers alike will be available at Train Station Park for $1 and under! The book sale is intended to be a fundraiser for Denham Springs schools and is also a great way to build up personal libraries that may have flooded!
The area surrounding Train Station Park will be abuzz with fun family activities. The Livingston Parish Library staff will be on hand performing two puppet shows (one at 11am with an encore at 1pm). Librarians will be on hand from 11am to 2pm with a craft table and button maker featuring everything you need to make great super-hero themed buttons!
Area food trucks will be stationed near all of the festivities and the popular Cupcake Allie and Pullin’ Pork trucks have agreed to donate a portion of the days sales to the school libraries as well. Brushfire Pottery studio will be open for paint-your-own pottery experiences and will be donating a portion of sales to the affected schools.
All of the action will not be outdoors though! Several authors will be in attendance inside Cavalier House Books for the day. Authors Wendy Woods and Kat Pigott will read their books, Welcome Home, Indigeaux and Green Dinosaur Pancakes at 12pm and 2pm. Local authors Tom Aswell, Bill Smith, and Joy Williams will be on hand to talk about their works and sign copies of their books as well. A portion of all instore sales will be donated to the school libraries.
We are committed to the area school system. We have worked hard for the last seven years to establish ourselves as a part of the community and to assist the school system in any way we can. Along with the in-school book fairs we have hosted over the years, this book sale is an important way for us to give back to our community. Cavalier House Books is your community bookstore and a true partnership with the community is the only way for an independent business to thrive and remain Denham Strong.
