We will have the ever popular “Teacher Wish List'' available again. When you visit the book fair, you will see books the teachers would like to receive for their classrooms. Please consider buying a book for teachers in order to help build their classroom libraries.

Donate Books

During the book fair we will collect gently used books for our sister school, Dover Elementary in San Pablo. This is a wonderful way to encourage your children to give back!

As always, our Scholastic Book Fair promises to be a great event to support the Alamo PTA and your family’s love of reading. We hope to see everyone there!
