It’s Our Buy One, Get One Free

Book Fair!

May 3rd – May 10th

It’s back!  Our annual BOGO book fair will be held May 3rd – May 10th.  Students will be attending the fair during their scheduled library classes.  Notices will be sent home with the date your child will be attending.  The Buy One, Get One Free sale is a great opportunity for children to stock up on books to read over the summer!    Please send your child’s money for books in an envelope or plastic baggie with his/her name on it.  We cannot accept personal checks, but credit card purchases can be made before school or at dismissal.
