Virtual Book Fair
Please shop our Coolidge book fair to buy great new books for your child's home library, for their classroom library and to support our Coolidge library! Our first online Follett book fair will be November 2-16th. Books can be purchased online from our fair with a credit card. The books ordered will be shipped to Coolidge, and we will 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. 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, on the left side, you can select that it is a gift. We will send gift books home with your child in a sealed envelope addressed to you.
Book Fair video instructions - students will be watching this video in class
You can browse the book fair anytime and can make purchases between November 2-16. Our book fair contains a large selection of popular, new titles.
Teachers are creating 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!

Here is the link to our monthly Coolidge Courier Newsletter. We will send one print copy home with each family this week. The link is also located on the Coolidge website if you need to find it. These are great memories of your child’s Coolidge years by keeping the newsletters in a binder.
