Spring Book Fair

The Spring Book Fair is fast approaching.  We will open the store in the library on Monday, March 16 after school.  Students will receive flyers about the books and view a preview video the week before the fair.   The video will also introduce some of the authors including Tammi Sauer who wrote Nugget & Fang about a shark and a minnow, and Katherine Applegate, author of The One and Only Ivan.

Students will preview the fair on Monday and Tuesday during their library time.  However, sales will only be made after school hours.

We will again have the online book fair for those unable to attend the fair in person or just looking for a different selection.  The online fair will be available from Wednesday, March 11 until Tuesday, March 24. All orders from the online store will be shipped free of charge to the school. They will be shipped 7-10 days after March 24.  The online book fair can be found at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/hayspringspublicschool.
