The Albany Education Foundation ( AEF) holds an annual bookfair at the El Cerrito Plaza Barnes & Noble store to benefit our school library. While you complete your own shopping, you may wish to consider purchasing a gift for our library as well. Friendly AEF volunteers will be in the store from 9 AM to 6 PM providing free gift wrapping of your purchases, and help in finding requested items . Shoppers MUST tell the cashier that they want their purchase to benefit AEF. If you can't make it to the store, you may shop on-line at BN.com/bookfairs, and provide the code # 12171393 at time of purchase.
Frequently asked questions:
- People can shop in the El Cerrito Store or on line at BN.com/bookfairs, however we get a higher % of in-store sales.
- Almost everything counts: Cafe purchases of coffee, books, magazines, LEGOS, etc etc all count AS LONG AS THE SHOPPER PROVIDES OUR NAME OR OUR CODE #. Shoppers do NOT have to have a paper slip, but must tell the cashier that their purchase is to benefit AEF. Purchases of gift cards are excluded.
- The online code # stays valid for a few days after Dec 2nd, but again, we get a better % for in-store purchases on Dec 2
