The Midway Village Book Fair at Barnes and Noble Bookstore raised money to support the museum on Saturday at the Cherryvale Mall store location.
A percentage of each net sale was given to the museum to go toward programs for the 150,000 Rockford artifacts as well as educational programs for the 20,000 students that pass through the museum and grounds each year.
Museum personnel manned an informational booth so guests could register for a gift basket and local authors Dan Swanson and Nicole C. Lindsay supported by hosting book signings for their local history research.
