Used Book Fair
Wednesday, May 22, during Field Day, the library will hold a used book fair. Each child may bring up to three gently used books from
home. The student council will collect these books from the classrooms, and record the number of books each student brought (up to three).
Students may bring more than three books; however, these books will be considered a greatly appreciated donation to the book fair.
Classes will then visit the library throughout the day to select "new to me" books. The goal is to have enough books for all students to
have at least one "new" book to take home for Summer.
Please check the books your child plans to bring to school to ensure that they are age appropriate, and that they are books you're willing
to exchange. We are particularly interested in higher-level chapter books.
With your support, we hope to promote Summer reading, as well as provide another great activity during Field Day.
