Book Fair Information

Getting children to read is one of the primary goals of schools, community education organizations and parent groups.  One of the most popular ways of doing that is through a school-sponsored book fair.  Putting books into our students’ hands is the primary motivation for our book fairs.  Timber Ridge believes that book fairs are a great wat to promote literacy, introduce students and their families to books they may not otherwise encounter and raise money for the school library.  We want to:

  • Promote literacy
  • Instill a love of reading that lasts a lifetime
  • Enrich classroom and library book collections
  • Strengthen school and home connections
  • Spark a fascination with books and an interest in reading
  • Create strong, independent readers
  • Provide families an opportunity to select and read books together (special grandparent and parent events)
  • Encourage a free-reading habit among students
  • Raise funds for the school library in a manner consistent with our educational mission


Our book fairs take place in the school’s cafeteria, the school’s learning resource center, online, and even out at local bookstores like Barnes & Noble.  Please come visit us during one of our fairs!
