Book Fair FAQ

What is the purpose of the Preston Elementary Book Fairs?

 

To get kids excited about reading!! We talk with the kids daily to discover which books they’re most interested and excited about. We help students find good-fit books for their home as well as their classroom libraries. There’s nothing better than hear a kid gasp when they find that perfect book!

 

…As a side-benefit, we also raise money to buy books and other library materials for our school.

 

Does the school receive any benefit from the book fair?

 

Yes! Anywhere from 25% to 50% of every item purchased is donated back to the school in the form of new books, online media and other curriculum-related materials. While our brand, new library has a wonderful collection of fiction and non-fiction books, it’s still on the basic side with lots of room to grow and expand.

 

If we order books thru the online Book Fair, when and how will our orders arrive?

The online book fair is a great option for those who can’t make it to school to view the book fair in person. The online book fair actually has an even wider selection of books! Orders made thru the online Scholastic Book Fair will be delivered to your home.
