On June 20th, 21st, and 22nd, Barnes & Noble will host a Bookfair benefiting Portus & HP Education Fanon. Every purchase made that day and attributed as a Portus/HPEF purchase will have a portion of the sale donated to Portus/HPEF. You may purchase anything in the store or anything available through the store to have shipped to your home.*

Do you have books, CDs, or DVDs you want to buy? Save your purchase for the above days! When you make a purchase at a participating Barnes & Noble during those days and use the Bookfair voucher or the Portus Bookfair number 310268, a portion of your sale will go back to Portus/HPEF to help us continue our literacy endeavors.

Here’s how you can help…

  1. Go to any Barnes & Noble and shop for any product you wish to buy, including books, CDs, DVDs, gift product, magazines, and café items.* When you go to the cash registers, give the cashier your Portus voucher or the Portus Bookfair number 310268, and make your purchase. You must have the voucher or Portus Bookfair number to have your purchase count towards the Portus Bookfair. Feel free to use your Barnes & Noble Membership card or Educator Discount card to save on your purchase. Don’t forget to use the voucher/Bookfair number at the Barnes & Noble Café, too! Every purchase counts!
  2. Call our designated Barnes & Noble host store at 817/472-7559 to make a purchase over the phone. To get your list of product ready for the phone order, you may go to your local Barnes & Noble and make a list of titles and ISBNs (the 10- or 13- digit book number unique to each book) or UPCs (product number unique to CDs and DVDs) you wish to purchase, OR you can browse online at BN.com for your list of titles. Then call the store, ask for the Portus phone order bookseller, and have them place your order. You may use your Barnes & Noble Membership card to save on your purchase. Give the bookseller your shipping address (which must be the same zip code as the billing address), and make your purchase over the phone using your credit card or Barnes & Noble gift card. (You must have the gift card or credit card available and have the security code and billing zip code.) Orders will be shipped directly to you. In addition, if your order is over $25, shipping is free!


For added fun in the DFW metroplex, join HPDFW on Saturday, June 21st at the Parks at Arlington Barnes & Noble for the HPDFW First Birthday Party! Details to come.

As an additional literacy benefit, make a purchase from our Wish List table at the Parks at Arlington location, and donate the book to LIFT, our designated auction charity, to help two organizations at once!

Want to help even more? Forward this information to your friends, family, co-workers, or anyone you think would make a purchase to support Portus and encourage them to make a purchase. Again, anything* available at a Barnes & Noble Bookstore is eligible for the Bookfair.

Please note that only sales made through a participating Barnes & Noble will count towards our Bookfair. Online purchases are NOT eligible for the Bookfair.

Any questions? Please contact our host Bookfair Barnes & Noble at 817-472-7559 or post on the Portus message board, and we will promptly reply. Thank you for your support.

*Gift card and Membership card, as well as magazine subscriptions and textbooks, activation purchases are not eligible for the Bookfair.
