This event is optional to provide families with resources and books for summer reading. From May 15th - May 31st, families may visit www.bookwormcentral.com and at the top of the page, enter newmarket as the organization code. (Please see this video on how to log into the site with our school code https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ie3U-7lXpk&feature=youtu.be ) After logging in to our school's virtual book fair, families will be able to browse and select from curated lists, categories and age ranges. Any purchased items will be shipped directly to families and orders over $20 qualify for free shipping. Again, this is an optional opportunity for purchasing books for summer reading.
