TCAPS Libraries Diverse Authors Book Fair

The Library Department of Traverse City Area Public Schools is proud to partner with Brilliant Books to create an online book fair featuring diverse authors.  By shopping through the book fair, your purchase helps fund diverse library collections throughout the TCAPS district: 25% of any book fair purchase supports TCAPS libraries, and all funds from this book fair will go toward purchasing books and educational materials from diverse authors.
 
To offer a starting point for young readers exploring diverse literature, we have created three lists of recommended books featuring BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) authors.  Their stories offer a glimpse at diverse experiences, perspectives, and cultures.  You can shop for picture books (ages 4-8), middle grade books (ages 8-12), and young adult books (13 and up) on these lists, which will continue to evolve and grow as new books are released. 
 
You do not need to have a child enrolled in TCAPS to take part in this book fair. In fact, it is open to all customers of all ages!  Additionally, the book fair is not limited to the featured titles.  Any purchase can be made in support of the TCAPS Libraries Diverse Authors Book Fair simply by selecting one of the options below, then shopping as usual.

Other things I should know?
If you are a Brilliant Books Member, please note that your automatic discounts will be removed from book fair orders, since that discount is being passed along to the TCAPS libraries as a 25% donation.  Similarly, to maximize the amount that can be donated to the library, our standard free shipping is not available for these orders.  They will be available for in-store pick up, or can be shipped for a small fee (select "Book Fair Shipping" at checkout).  If you do not select a paid shipping option, the costs of free shipping must be deducted from the total donation your order provides, so please make sure to select the correct option at checkout!
