Fall Book Fair

After getting back on track after a MAJOR snow event in Western New York, it was time for the annual middle school fall book fair (although it felt more like a winter book fair!).

The arrival of the book fair, sadly, was delayed due to the storm.  We were hoping to have everything up and running for school on Monday, November 24th, but that didn't work out exactly as we had anticipated.  The book fair was set up by 12:30 PM that day, so there still was a little time to browse.

Over the next two days, the book fair was open during the parent/teacher conference times.  This was a great time to get a head start on holiday shopping.  The popular titles this year included Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and the Minecraft handbooks.

Despite the snowy start, the book fair was very successful.  The fair raised $636.07 for our library.  This money will be used to purchase new books and supplies for the library makerspace. 

Thank you to all that supported the book fair!  If you are still interested in shopping, our online book fair is available through December 6th:
Happy shopping!
