Northfield Middle School’s student-run bookstore, The Tattered Pages, is now accepting donations for the 15th Annual Holiday Shopping, which will be held during school hours from December 14-16.
Donations needed include:
• Used books for all ages (students will choose gifts for young and old)
• All appropriate types of multimedia, including DVDs, video games, CDs, etc. (in the original packaging)
• Lightly used gift items from your home such as photo frames, home decor, stuffed animals, candles, jewelry, lightly used toys, puzzles, games, etc.
• Gift wrapping, bows, bags, tissue paper, ribbons, etc.
All of The Tattered Pages books are “bought” by students using coupons rather than real currency. Students can earn coupons by donating books to the bookstore, working in the bookstore, doing work in a media center, and excelling in their classrooms. Items in the bookstore are inventoried, rated, and shelved by hardworking students and vary in value from one coupon to 15 coupons each, depending on the condition and popularity of the item. There are currently over 2,000 new and used books available in The Tattered Pages.
The 15th Annual Holiday Shopping will be a wonderful opportunity for students to purchase gifts for everyone on their holiday list, without spending a dime. As in the past, the sale will include free gift wrap, music and festivities.
Donations can be dropped off at Northfield Middle School or call the Media Center at 507-663-0677 for a local pickup.
In addition, volunteers are needed to help with the wrapping of the gifts. Contact Samantha Becker at the Middle School Media Center for more information at Sbecker@northfieldschools.org.
