Coretta Scott King award winning picture books.

Library Updates


Students will preview the book fair on Friday, March 3rd and Monday, March 6th. The fair will be open for purchases on the afternoon of March 6th. The book fair will also be open on Tuesday, March 7th during conferences, so if you would like to stop by, we will be in the library!

One easy way to have students make purchases at the fair is through an eWallet. Once you set up an account, you can easily put money in for the students to use at the fair. Each morning, I will print out eWallets for any student scheduled to visit the fair each day (teachers sign up for time slots). You can access the eWallets using the link

Preview Books and Set Up your eWallet

If you are available during the day or after school on Tuesday, you can Sign up to Volunteer at the Fair! When you volunteer, you will be helping students find books they would like to purchase. You will also get $5 to spend at the fair!
