When will my children have a chance to go to the Book Fair?
Students will visit the book fair with their classes on Monday, 10/17 or Tuesday, 10/18 to browse and create a wish list that they will bring home. Classes will return on Wednesday 10/19 or Thursday 10/20. Check with your child’s teacher to determine the exact days. Students are permitted to shop before school, on their Designated day, or after school.

I’d like to buy something for a teacher. How do I know what they would like?
All of the Teacher Wish Lists will be posted on the right hand wall as you enter the Large Pod. Simply choose an item from the list, find it at the fair, cross it off the list, and purchase it. Bookplate stickers will be available for you to complete before your child delivers the book to their teacher or specialist. Thank you for your gift!

Will sales tax be charged?
Take advantage of tax-free shopping at the book fair!
