Barnes & Noble Book Fair

The SBYSO participates in annual book fair at Barnes and Noble at University Park Mall in Mishawaka.  This year’s book fair will take place on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 12:00-4:00pm.


SBYSO students and families will receive bookmarks containing pertinent information about this event that we will ask you to distribute a few weeks leading up to December 7.  These bookmarks contain a code that is specific to the SBYSO book fair.  A portion of proceeds made on this day in a Barnes and Noble store, or for up to a week afterward online at, using this code will have a portion of all sales donated to the SBYSO.  This is a great way to support our community and also to let others know about the SBYSO, perhaps even for the first time.


In order to make our event as successful as possible, we ask that students and families sign up to help out at the event on December 7 in one or more of the following ways:

  • Help out with our Instrument Petting Zoo (chance for kids to try out instruments; all instruments provided by Quinlan and Fabish; students will NOT have to use their own instruments for this)
  • Sign up to read music-themed children’s books in the kids’ section of the store.
  • Perform with your chamber group (informally) for 15-20 minutes.
  • Volunteer to help at our gift wrap table.


Those who are available to help should fill out the online Barnes and Noble Volunteer Sign Up form.  Thanks in advance for your willingness to help.
