Book fair at mall

Who doesn’t love a book fair? It was one of the highlights of this Eh? desker’s elementary school years.

Barnes & Noble at the Miller Hill Mall in Duluth is hosting its own book fair today, and this one will benefit North Country R.I.D.E., which provides therapeutic horseback riding to at-risk youth and people of all ages with special needs in Carlton, Douglas and St. Louis counties.

The book store will donate 10 percent of its sales from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. to when customers present a book-fair voucher to a sales associate. Online purchases from Saturday to Wednesday are eligible. Go to to download the voucher. Volunteers will be onsite to hand out vouchers, too. They’ll also have information about North Country R.I.D.E., supplies for making Mother’s Day cards, and face painting for kids.
