The Library Media Ambassadors and I have finished another wonderful Book Fair!
We started with a pizza party on Sunday night (2/17) where we set up the book fair, created the book fair job schedule, and trained on the register. Then from Tuesday through Friday (2/19-2/22), the LMA took the reins and ran the book fair!
Students purchased books not only for themselves, but for their teachers from Teacher Wishlists. The selection of titles from Follett was PERFECT! They also donated their change so that we can contribute to Love Grove's food pantry. For each purchase and donation, students earned raffle tickets. We had five grand prize winners: Kate Y., Catherine H., Elizabeth M., Claire H., Lucas H. Each winner received a paperback book from the fair and a gift card to the School Store.
Our total Book Fair profit (30% of revenue) was $1041.72!
Every year, we donate our Book Fair profit to a deserving school or organization. This year, for the 3rd consecutive year, Love Grove Elementary school is our Beneficiary. We hope that Love Grove enjoys the books purchased from these funds for many years to come. We certainly love the opportunity to enrich their library collection. The LMA look forward to doing it all again next year!
