Book Fairs Are Back!
Saturday, February 18, 2023
On February 20th, we're kicking off our spring book fair season and we can't wait to get started!
Last fall was our first full-scale, in-person book fair season since the beginning of the pandemic and, rather to our surprise, it was also our biggest ever! We had a record number of schools sign up—several even had to be deferred until spring!—and we brought in new fixtures and displays to help bring the magic of a bookstore directly into every school we visited. The end result? More than $7,000 raised for four different schools, including the TCAPS schools Eastern Elementary, Long Lake Elementary, and West Middle School, and Birch Street Elementary of Kalkaska Public Schools. For the spring season, we've got six schools lined up already, including three we've never worked with before, and several more in the preliminary planning stages. We're confident that this season we can raise more than $10,000 by the time we've wrapped up our last fairs.
