Bring on the Books!

The annual book fair is coming soon, just in time for holiday gifts. Books will be on sale in the library December 9-13 from 8:00AM-5:00PM, and we are still looking for volunteers for this fantastic annual event. Get to know other parents while you help students select books, serve as a friendly face during the event, or work the register. Did we mention that you will get a discount on your purchases during your volunteer shift? And did we mention that 30% of the proceeds will go toward keeping our library shelves well-stocked with great books for curious minds?  Visit our SignUp Genius page to select your day and time. We have included a class schedule so that you can coordinate your session with your child’s class.

Want your child to shop the book fair without cash? Follett Book Fair Gift Cards are digital – they are easy to purchase, and easy to use. Families can simply select the amount they would like and print it at home.  Gift cards make great gifts for students from extended family members who might not be able to attend the fair. After the fair, any leftover balance can be redeemed at Follett’s online store.

During the book fair, shoppers have the opportunity to support not only Lafayette’s library, but also classrooms at the Takoma Education Classroom! Stay tuned for more information from Lafayette Gives Back.

Thanks so much,

The Book Fair Committee
