From Monday, March 7 through Saturday, March 12, we will be hosting our annual Scholastic Book Fair in our meeting room. This event is a fundraiser for the children’s library programming. For every dollar spent on books and merchandise at the book fair, a percentage comes back to our library’s account with Scholastic to purchase books, audio books, posters, bookmarks, and summer reading program prizes. We are considered a “success story” with Scholastic because we have increased our sales and utilized our “Scholastic Dollars” in so many ways. This year our reward for this is a free basket of books worth $100! We will also be holding an online fair this year so that you can still purchase from our event, even if you are unable to attend in person. The website is bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/drakepubliclibrary If you are interested in volunteering to help us run our book fair, please call us at 856-6676. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 and able to make change and run a cash register. Thank you in advance for your continued support of our annual Scholastic Book Fair and the children’s programming at Drake Public Library!
