Stay for Lunch / Dinner
Consider gifts of books, movies, music, toys and games. Grab a beverage or goodie at the Café (yes, these purchases count as well!) or enjoy a meal at any of the three restaurants offering a 20% kickback to Madera during the same time! (Pasta Pomodoro, Panda Express and Rubios, all located within Plaza). Print out & present the flyer(s) below when you pay:
Also consider purchasing books from your teacher’s wish lists or for the Madera library. Wish list books will be located in the middle of the Children’s section on a rolling bookcase. Also, a binder listing all of the books requested will be available at the store. Even if your child’s teacher does not provide a wish list, ask your child if he/she has favorite authors or books not currently available in our library. Ms Meibos would LOVE to refresh our library books, and this may be specifically true with reading materials for our 6th Graders!
There will be a few fun & simple crafts for the kids in the children’s section as well, including making Sock puppets.
Volunteers? If you are able to help distribute flyers throughout the plaza or help with activities for an hour or two, please contact Terri Lynn Sullivan.
