Elementary Book Fair Info

Reading for pleasure, inside and outside of school, has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in your home.
Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair, either in-person or via or online fair, and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Shop Online October 1-14: If you are unable to attend the Fair in person or just want the convenience of shopping at your leisure, we invite you to shop our online Book Fair at Our online Fair is available from October 1-14. Items will be shipped to the school for FREE and delivered to classrooms after Oct 14. This is a great option for families to take advantage of since the online fair contains many more items and in all age ranges compared to the fair we physically have at school.

Book Fair Dates & Shopping Hours at the ES School Library:
October 6 – 3:30-8:00pm
October 7 – 7:20-8:00am
October 8 – 7:20-8:00am AND 3:30-8:00pm
Due to scheduling issues, students WILL NOT be able to purchase at other times during the day.

With some of our profits we will be giving away books to students at each grade level. Students can enter to win a book by coloring our Monster Book Fair coloring sheet (get one in the library) and returning it by Oct 7.

Teachers can also win books. Classroom teachers may be handing out raffle tickets to families during conferences on Oct 6 and 8. All families need to do is drop off that raffle ticket in the library to enter their teacher into a drawing to win a basket full of books.

Other profits will be used to support the library program in our school district.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Amanda Olson, SCC's district library media specialist.
