The Book Fair is almost here!!

The Book Fair returns on September 22nd and and it's going to be ARRRGGGGHHH-some time! Our goal for this book fair is 1,309 books sold! That equals 235,620 in reading minutes, but I know our Mighty Mustangs can do it, and do it easily!

Like last year, our book fair will be open until 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28th during conferences. Swing by with your child and pick up a great book for them to read.

Can't make it to the fair? Don't worry, you can shop from home. Visit our online Book Fair page here:

Our book fair is looking for volunteers! Contact the media center at (770) 806-3836 to schedule a time to come in and work the book fair. Our volunteers get a 10% off discount on their purchase!
