Shop for Books at This Saturday's Fall Book Fair
Friday, October 02, 2015 12:00 PM

Families can make a day of it with food, storytelling, shopping, and more!

The Fall Book Fair, from 11 am to 2 pm in the Burroughs gym, has it all: a great selection of books for kids of all ages, guest storytellers (including Mr. Cadotte in his pajamas), and face painting. This year, families can also look forward to an author book-signing. Burroughs parent Erin Soderberg, author of the new series Puppy Pirates and kid-favorite series The Quirks, will be at the Book Fair signing copies of her books (cash or check only, with 20% of all sales being donated to Burroughs).

Be sure to stock up on all kinds of books for home, and you can purchase books for your child's classroom or the Media Center. Families can also support Armful of Books, an organization that donates books to Burroughs kids who need them. For every dollar raised for Armful of Books, Scholastic, Inc. will donate one additional book to another family in need.

Don't forget to grab a slice of pizza from the Book Fair Café in the cafeteria. And be sure to get your entire family vaccinated for the flu. We look forward to seeing you at this great event!
