Book Fair Will Benefit NYSP

Posted on April 18th, 2007 by

A Scholastic book fair will take place April 24-26 at Gustavus Adolphus College in the Dive, located in the O.J. Johnson Student Union. A wide variety of books will be available for purchase from 12 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. during the three-day event.

All proceeds from the fair will go to the National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) and its summer programs.

The NYSP is an instructional program for boys and girls from low-income households. The program uses sports instruction and competition as a vehicle to enhance self-esteem, to promote respect for oneself and others, to reinforce the importance of education to one’s future, and to promote active, healthy lifestyles.

Gustavus is one of 57 higher education institutions in the country that will host NYSP summer activities in 2007.
