Our annual Book Fair is on again this week. We always have it just before Book Week, which is a bit of a pain in terms of work load, but it’s a nice lead up and helps keep the focus on books. We use Scholastic because the cases make it simple and I don’t have spare furniture to set up display tables. I make sure they only send us books though – I’ve banned the posters and the variety trays because the kids would spend all their money on pencils and rubbers rather than a book.
We set up in the library foyer which is a bit cramped but it gets a lot of passing traffic.
This year we got a Geronimo Stilton costume and our library monitors have had a lot of fun dressing up in it and walking around the library and the junior school.
