Kersey Creek Scholastic Book Fair Guide

Kersey Creek Comets, the Scholastic Book Fair is back! Literacy is a priority at KCES, and book fairs are a terrific source for affordable, high interest books for our children. The money raised will allow our KCES Library to purchase more books and instructional materials for our students.

During the week of April 17th-21st your child will preview the book fair and create a wishlist. On April 26th we will have a family shopping night from 5:30-6:45 p.m. During the week of April 24th-28th students will have the opportunity to shop the book fair during their library time.

There are 3 ways to shop!

  1. Shopping Night: Join us on Wednesday 4/26 from 5:30-6:45 p.m. and shop as a family.

  2. Student Shopping: 4/24, 4/25, 4/26, 4/27, 4/28 during library class.

  • Give your child a safe, cashless way to shop the Book Fair with an eWallet. This digital payment option can be used at the in-school Book Fair or online at the Virtual Book Fair. Cash will also be accepted.

  • Visit to set up your child’s eWALLET account. Your child’s wish list may be helpful in determining a budget amount. Although we are unable to invite parents to the shopping experience during library we promise to help your child max out their checkout! Any ewallet balances under a dollar will be donated to the KCES library book fair fund.

Teacher Wishlists: Help Build Classroom Libraries
