Brecknock Book Fair – November 2016
The Scholastic Book Fair held in the Brecknock Elementary Library in November was a BIG success. Over $8,000.00 of books and school supplies were sold to Brecknock teachers, students and their families. The sales total was 1,000.00 higher than last year!
Many parents shopped at the Book Fair on the Parent-Teacher Conference Days on November 10-11. Students had the opportunity to shop when their classes came to the library during the week of November 14-18.
Many individuals received special prizes or gift certificates:
• 24 students received a $6.00 gift certificate (one per class by drawing)
• 10 teachers received a $15.00 gift certificate
• 3 lucky students were awarded a $30.00 Book Fair shopping spree!!
The winners of the shopping spree were: Liam Ray, grade 2, Paige Brady, grade 4, and Nathan Eberly, grade 5. A parent had to enter their child when they visited the Book Fair to be in this special drawing. The three names were drawn on the last day of the Fair.
In addition, many new library books are being added to our collection with the Book Fair profits: 100 paperback books were “earned” directly from the Book Fair cases and 60 paperback books were added to our Reading Is Fundamental program. Additional profits will be used for hardcover library books or equipment/supplies as needed.
Many, many thanks to the 25+ school volunteers who assisted with this project in the library. It wouldn’t be a success without them!!
The next Book Fair is scheduled for Nov. 2017.
