Book Fair

At Glenmoor we believe a book fair is more than a book sale. It’s an opportunity to bring a book store to our school and help build excitement about reading among the students. We are very proud to be a part of broadening the minds of young people by offering a wide range of wonderful books at an incredible savings. Let us join forces with you to help your child discover all the joys of reading!

The fall book fair starts the same day as our Fall Carnival and run through the first week of November.

See the schedule; download the book fair app to find right-fit books; and check out our goal progress.

Although the book fair is not an official PTA sponsored fundraiser (it’s run by the Library Media Tech, Mrs. Lafontaine), we feel this is an important event where we get a chance to support our school library and promote reading!  Proceeds go directly toward purchasing new books for the library.

Please take some time to watch the below videos on raising great readers and creating an idea space in your house!
