Frequently Asked Questions

Book Selection

The book flier sent home is only a small selection of titles that will be available for students to purchase. We will have a wide variety of books. Volunteers will be available to help students shop.


Students will preview the book fair with their class on Friday, October 7th, to make a wish list of interesting titles. They are not obligated to purchase items from their wish lists.

Ordering Out of Stock Titles

If we sell out of a title, students may pay for it during the book fair and we will order a

copy for them. Prepaid orders are typically delivered to the school the week after the

book fair ends.


If you wish to send in money with your child, please put the check (made payable to

NMES) or money in an envelope with your child’s name and the teacher’s name on the

outside of the envelope. Please include 6% MD tax. We also accept credit and debit


Our bookfair company also has an eWallet, where parents can set up a maximum amount for their child to spend and then print a barcode to send to school in place of cash. A tutorial video on using the eWallet option is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWMjvmZ_hVU. You can find the eWallet website at https://www.bookwormbmaps.com/eWallet/.
