Thayer Elementary book fair Oct. 31-Nov. 4

Friday, October 28, 2011

Thayer Elementary School will host a Scholastic Book Fair Oct. 31-Nov. 4 to raise money for books, equipment and library materials.

The fair will feature numerous books and educational products, including newly released works, award-winning titles, children's classics, interactive software and current bestsellers from many publishers. The school's goal is to put at least 400 books in students' hands.

The fair is open from 7:45 a.m.-4 p.m. daily. All are invited. A special family event will be from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 3 with cookies and a drawing. Three people will win $20 in book fair products.

Residents also can help build classroom libraries by buying books for teachers through the Classroom Wish List program. Book fair proceeds will be used to support the curriculum to buy books, equipment and materials for the Thayer Elementary School library.

The fair also will feature a One For Books! program with a donation box on the cashier's table to buy books for students who cannot afford to shop at the book fair.

Purchases can also be made online to count toward Thayer book fair sales. The address is http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage....
