The Book Fair will be open each day from 7:35 am to 3:30 pm and feature a wide range of books for middle school, young teens and adults, including mystery and adventure novels, fantasy series, sports guides, graphic novels, and the latest best sellers from more than 100 publishers. Parents, children, teachers, and the community are invited to attend.
On October 14th from 4:30 to 7:30, the Book Fair will feature an evening event for parents, community members, and other staff members that aren’t able to come during the day.
Student volunteers, dubbed the Crew, helped to plan the Fair and will also help run it. From creating special promotions and merchandising displays to managing inventory and assisting shoppers with their selections, Crew members learn real-life skills while helping to encourage reading at their school.
“Our Student Crew is working very hard to put on a great Book Fair event – one that promotes literacy and reading, while at the same time raising money for much-needed school resources,” said Gayle Schell, Librarian, at Denair Middle School.
Fair attendees can also help build classroom libraries by purchasing books for teachers through the Classroom Wish List program. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Schell at (209) 632-2510, ext. 3210, or (209) 632-9911, ext. 4259.
