Book Fairs

Scholastic Book Fairs

We have two book fairs each year.  The sole purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money to purchase books.  Other than donations, this is the only money I receive to purchase books for the library.  

What do we do with the money received from the book fair?
In a Scholastic book fair, we receive 25% of the sales in cash or 50% of sales in Scholastic dollars.  We usually choose the cash option so that we have more options available to us.  

Currently, I am discarding old books from our non fiction section and purchasing new, more accurate books to replace them.  I am continually adding to our beloved graphic novels collection and our Spanish collection. 
In the 2019-2020 school year, the focus will be on weeding out old books and acquiring new picture books.
