Because our book fairs have been too small in the past, Scholastic has started sending us book club orders. They are just like in Elementary school but, geared for teens! There are hundreds to titles to choose from each month and the prices are better than they were with the book fair! It's a great chance to get some good titles to read. If you are interested, stop in and grab a form from the library. You can also go to HERE and use the code N28LQ as the classroom. Any purchase online is usually here within two or three days and it's free shipping. It's a great way to help out the library and get some new books!
