Book Fair Information

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 the 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.

Our bookfairs 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!

  • Promote literacy
  • Instill a love of reading that lasts a lifetime
  • Enrich classroom and library book collections

  • Special grandparent and parent events provide families an opportunity to select and read books together
  • Encourage a free-reading habit among students
  • Raise funds for the school library in a manner consistent with our educational mission
