Now more than ever, reading is vital to leading a better life. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to keep reading, comprehend what they read and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals.

This year we will continue the CLASSROOM WISH PROGRAM, each teacher will be asked to fill-in their “book wish list” prior to the Fair.

Look for your child’s teacher’s name on the display in the Learning Commons. Teachers select the best and most appropriate books to meet their students’ reading levels and learning needs. It is their wish that these books become a permanent part of the classroom library. Every generous gift you make will be recognized with a special bookplate, identifying your family or child as the donor. Your support can help a classroom blossom with new and exciting adventures in reading, stimulating young minds for years to come.

Lastly, we are hosting a special Family Event Thursday from 3:30pm to 8:00pm and Friday from 9:00am to 11:00am. Stop by to enter your family in a draw to win free prizes.
