Scholastic Book Fair And
FOL Used Book Sale
Thanks to everyone who came out and shopped and/or worked the Used Book Sale and Scholastic Book Fair. Over $450.00 was generated from the used book sales, almost doubling last year's profits. Close to $1,500.00 was netted in the Scholastic Book sales with almost $1,000.00 worth of new books purchased for classroom wish lists.
All profits from the sale go towards purchasing new books and resources for both of the libraries.
Thank you for your support!
