The 2017 Annie Wright Schools Book Fair

Students, Parents, Teachers!

During the week of April 10 through April 14, we invite you to the Library & Learning Commons for our Annual Book Fair. The Book Fair will open on the afternoon of April 10, and we will run  3:00 to 4:30 on each afternoon of that week. In celebration of Annie Writer’s Tea, we will also extend the book fair hours to 5:30pm on Wednesday, April 12.

As in years past, we are excited that Seattle-based independent bookstore Secret Garden Books will be organizing our book fair. They’ll stock the fair with classic, eclectic and contemporary selections for any reading level and interest in our community. We particularly appreciate Secret Garden’s commitment to high quality books that resist commercial messaging.

Students in Grades 3-5 are welcome to shop during the recess they arrange with their teacher, and all students are welcome to purchase books after school with a supervising adult. You can pay for your purchases with cash, a credit card, or a check payable to ‘Secret Garden Bookshop.’ Unfortunately, we cannot charge purchases to your Annie Wright Schools bookstore account at this time.

Our book fair provides a wonderful opportunity to excite readers young and old with wonderful selections, and proceeds of the fair contribute to maintaining our library’s expansive collection. If you have any questions, please contact Joe Romano or Carla Clark regarding the book fair.

And! Our book fair runs the smoothest with the generous help of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for our book fair for an afternoon (or for the week!), do let us know, and we’d be happy to have your help hawking books.

Happy Reading. And we’ll see you at the fair!
