Virtual Book Fair
This is our final week of our Coolidge book fair! Please shop for books before the fair ends on Monday, November 16th. This is a terrific opportunity to buy great new books for your child's home library, for their classroom library and to support our Coolidge library! Books can be purchased online from our fair with a credit card or debit card. The books ordered will be shipped to Coolidge. We hope to have them in time to distribute them to staff and students the week of November 30-December 4. We will also contact families of virtual Coolidge learners that week to arrange a time to pick up their book orders from Coolidge.
You can make purchases between November 2-16. Our book fair contains a large selection of popular, new titles.
With the holidays coming up, this would be a wonderful opportunity to buy new books for your loved ones. When you add a gift book to your online cart, you can select that it is a gift. We will send gift books home with your child in a sealed envelope addressed to you.
Many teachers have created wish lists on our online book fair. Purchasing books for classroom libraries is a great way to support your child's teacher and our library. We will place donation labels inside each book before delivering them to teachers.
The profits earned from our book fair will be used to purchase new library books. At Coolidge, most of our budget for new library books comes from book fairs, so please help it be a success. Thanks for supporting our readers with terrific new books!
