Book Fair – November 14-18, Volunteers Needed

Our Scholastic Book Fair is coming!  We will once again be holding the fair the week before Thanksgiving, November 14 – 18, in the Edmunds Middle School Library and we are in need of volunteers.  We are looking for folks who can help at the sales table, re-stock books, and just generally help with the children as they select books to purchase.  Ideally, we would need you for about one to two hours or for as much time as you can give us. This is a huge fundraiser for the library so any help would be appreciated.  If you are interested, please contact either librarian Kathy Neil at 864-8407 or at kneil@bsdvt.orgor parent volunteer Peg Emerson at snowsorry@comcast.net  Thank you!

Book Fair hours are:

Mon. Nov. 14th 10:30 am – 3:30 pm
Tues. – Thurs. Nov.15th-17th 8:00 -3:30
Friday November 18th 8:00– 2:30

Special Family Night Thursday Nov. 17th 6:00 to 7:30 pm. We will have a story-telling event with Don Wright of the Very Merry Theatre that evening.

During the school day students will have an opportunity to preview and purchase books from the fair. Many children make a list of books that interest them, along with their prices, so you can plan their purchases. As I meet with each class during the book fair week, I let them know that I also purchase books from the fair for our library and that they will certainly be able to borrow these books to read at home.

We encourage parents, friends, and relatives to visit our book fair to do some easy holiday shopping while benefiting our school library. Fair will be held this year on November 14 –18 in the Edmunds Middle School Library. Scholastic will once again be providing the books for our sale. We will have a wide variety from which to choose in fiction and nonfiction titles for children in both paperback and hardcover.
