SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR 11/28 - 12/2, 8am - 4pm
A great variety of books for different tastes and ages including newly released Diary of a Wimpy Kid book #17! Please, review the booklist. This year the parents are welcome to shop at the fair in Fallsmead Media Center.
Last year EWallet proved to be a winner of payment methods - no tears over lost cash at all! Please, create an EWallet account for your student. The unused funds on the EWallet account can be used for online shopping at Scholastic year round. We will accept cash and credit cards at the fair.
'Books, Board Games and S'more Fun'
On Wednesday, November 30th, the book fair will be open late, 6pm - 8pm. Bring the whole family, bring your favorite board game from home, set it up in APR, teach your neighbors, learn how to play their game, stop at the library between the rounds!
See you all at the Fair!
