ONLINE BOOK FAIRS
If you choose to opt for an online Book Fair, your school will be given a dedicated page where the books that you select (with help from us) will be uploaded and divided into categories - Picture Books, Junior Fiction, Middle Grade Fiction and Non-fiction.
You will still be supplied with digital assets to promote your book fair and the opportunity to raise much-needed funds for the library through our commission program, will remain the same.

A Bundle of Books
Bundle up a two day book fair, carefully tailored to suit your readers, with an information evening for parents on Raising Happy Readers. Book Fair Commissions apply to the Book Fair sales while 15% of sales from the information evening will be added to the overall commission.
