Coming Soon: HRMS Will Host A Virtual Book Fair

March 15-26, 2021

Our partner for this online book fair is Junior Library Guild. The JLG has over 40,000 new books for children and young adults published annually. The books are selected by librarians. A virtual book fair has the following advantages;

  • Shop from the safety and convenience of your home.

  • Direct-to-home delivery. Every purchase from our online book fair will be delivered to your home. You can also shop by a teacher wish lists and those books will be shipped directly to their classrooms.

  • Books start at $5.00. Most books in our online fair will be hardcover and first edition with library-quality binding. Shipping is free for all orders over $30.

  • Supports our school. Our library receives a percentage of every book fair purchase and the funds raised will purchase more quality books to our library collection.

  • We have simple scholarship process so that all of our students can choose to order a book they want as a result of a very generous donation from the Hood River Lions.

More information will be shared about how to participate in this opportunity. Thank you in advance for supporting HRMS and helping us put quality books in the hands of our students!
