Book fair comes to Thayer

Thursday, November 6, 2003

THAYER -- The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Thayer Elementary School Nov. 10 through Nov. 14.

According to TES librarian Janet Bowers, the fair will bring the best books and educational learning products from more than 150 publishers to readers of all ages. The fair is open to the community.

Bowers said the fair will feature traditional children's favorites and new works by popular authors and illustrators. She said parents and teachers will find plenty to interest them, too. The fair will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Special family events on Nov. 11 and 13 will feature a drawing for those attending each night for $25 in free books. Everyone is welcome.

Bowers said building classroom libraries is one goal of the book fair. Visitors can purchase and donate requested books for any classroom's library. Book fair gift certificates can be purchased for a special gift.

The librarian said the fair helps the school promote learning while raising money for carpet and furnishings for the new elementary library.
