PARIS – In celebration of Children’s Book Week and in preparation for the holiday season, Usborne Book Sales Consultant Mary Williams will hold a “Bookraiser” for the Paris Public Library Monday through Friday, Nov. 15 to 19.

Usborne books and catalogs will be available at the library for viewing and ordering. Williams will be at the library during the mornings and late afternoons Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

If the goal of $1,000 in orders is reached, the library will receive $500 in Usborne books. Usborne is a British publisher of children’s books and has craft kits which combine a craft book with the required materials. Visitors may also purchase books for the library’s collection, dedicating them to loved ones.
