Our book fair was very different this year, but our community still showed up to support literacy! Thank you to everyone who promoted the book fair to friends and families, and many thanks for everyone who purchased books. Together, we raised $1,683.20 to expand our classroom libraries!
I owe a great debt to Alexandra Lewin-Zwerdling for her help promoting the book fair. She brought great focus, proofreading and ideas to the process. Every year, I rely on wonderful Lafayette volunteers to put the book fair together; thank you for shouldering that burden during a pandemic!
Thanks to Ms. Bosurgi for sharing book fair news on Lafayette’s social media accounts, and my appreciation to the Lafayette teachers and staff who talked up the book fair to their students!
The book fair is over, but there are many great ways to get new books in your student’s hands! DC Library’s Chevy Chase branch is open, and Montgomery County Public Library offers pickup of holds at two branches close to Lafayette. Students also have access as DCPS students to ebooks through Sora and Destiny Discover. Check out these tips for reading for more info!
