The annual Edna book fair is next week! It will be held in the new multi-purpose room (MPR) March 3-6 from 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. - with the evening Book Fair Cafe on Thursday, March 6 from 5-8 p.m.
All proceeds will benefit our school library. We have a lovely new library with a lot of space for new books! With state funding cuts, the Book Fair and Birthday Books are the only sources of funding our library receives. We need your support to help create a successful fair! We are looking for volunteers to help unload books, set up decorations, and work the fair. Every hour of volunteer time helps! Click here to sign up online.
We need items donated for the Book Fair Raffle. Gift certificates, gift baskets, the latest iPad, a weekend in Tahoe, or tickets to the Giants, you name it! This popular raffle is a fun way to support the library. If you belong to a book club, please contact us with the books you would like us to stock at the fair.
We are very honored to have children's author Katherine Applegate, author of The One and Only Ivan, join us this year at the Book Fair. Grades 2 through 5 will have assemblies with Katherine Applegate. The One and Only Ivan is a wonderful book with some sad moments and deep messages. It is worth you reading as well as your children (grades 2 and up) as it will inspire conversation and deeper understanding.
Please contact the following people if you have donations, questions, suggestions, or time to give us:
