We held a Scholastic book fair in our library from November 21-28, 2012. It was my first time running a book fair, so I was very excited about it. I quickly realized there was no way I was going to be able to do it on my own! I was very fortunate to have a number of parents, students, teachers, and other community members generously donate their time to help with the book fair. The efforts of the volunteers made the fair run smoothly and it was a great fundraising success for our school library. Thank you once again to all of those wonderful volunteers!!!
We sold about $2700 worth of books during the fair which meant we received a credit of about $1250 from Scholastic to use towards books for our library. Throughout the book fair, students made suggestions of books from the fair they would like to see in the library. All of the books they suggested will be added to the library along with many more.
We will hold another Scholastic book fair in the library around the same time next year. Hope to see you there as a shopper, volunteer or both!
Here are some pictures of some of the books we got to keep from the fair. See if you can find one that you would enjoy! Also, there will be more books purchased with the credit from Scholastic arriving soon. I'll keep you posted about those through this blog!
