The student-operated Northfield Middle School bookstore, The Tattered Pages, is looking for donations of books and gifts for its sixth annual Mother’s Day Sale, May 5-8.
If donors cannot bring their books or gift items to the middle school, they may call 507.663.0677 to arrange for pick up.
Popular book topics for the sale include cooking, gardening, crafts and art. Other gift items welcomed by the store include stationary, journals, candles, mugs, statuary, picture frames, plants, plaques, jewelry and key chains.
Middle school students and their families are invited to the Mother’s Day sale opening event, which will coincide with the school’s annual Cinco de Mayo celebration on Thursday, May 5, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
The Tattered Pages accepts coupons from student customers, rather than real currency, for purchases of books and other used items. Students earn coupons by donating books; working in the bookstore; doing an exceptional job in the classroom, cafeteria or on the school bus; or by completing a task from a teacher’s job jar.
