The annual Scholastic Book Fair will be held at the Drake Public Library Monday, May 22 through Saturday, May 27 during normal business hours. In years past, this event has been held in March but we are trying something new this year. This year’s “table top” fair is being held at the end of May in order to help kick off Summer Reading Program season.
We are still looking for volunteers to help run the fair during business hours (10-6). It is relatively simple. Any adult with a bit of cash register experience can do it. Its more fun with a buddy, so bring a friend! If you are interested, please contact us at 856-6676. As a volunteer, you will be lucky enough to see the books that are available for purchase right away!
This year’s theme is “Happy Camper Book Fair: S’more Fun with Books!” and promises to be full of wonderful reading choices as well as a few fun novelty items. There will be books of all types and price ranges for children pre-school through young adult. Scholastic provides good quality reading materials that are very popular with kids and families.
This book fair helps us earn “Scholastic Dollars” to purchase books and other materials for the library. We can earn up to 50% of our total sales! Its been a wonderful resource for the Children’s Library and we hope that you will help support the Drake Public Library through this fun event. Come to our book fair!
