It will cost Northern Lehigh School District nearly $7,000 to fix its track.

By a unanimous vote, the school board agreed on Monday to authorize administration to enter into a contract with American Athletic Courts, Inc., to repair the track edge and curbing at a cost of $6,800.

The work will be paid from the remainder of money in the bond, and any remaining balance will be paid from the general fund.

Also on Monday, Assistant Superintendent Karen Nicholas informed the board of the upcoming Barnes & Noble Book Fair, to be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Lehigh Valley Mall.

Nicholas said the event is part of the district's Title I reading program, and added that due to its past success, parents asked the district to participate in the event again this year.

She said that preschool through sixth grade students will have a chance to win a raffle prize, or a Barnes & Noble cookie party to be held in their classroom, and added that the schools will receive proceeds from any of the sales.

"We're looking forward to have everyone come and join us," Nicholas said. "Our main focus is to get everyone interested in books and get everybody reading."
