The Book Fair 2017!

Dec 4

Monday, December 04, 2017  RssIcon

We have our annual library fundraiser Book Fair running from Monday, December 18th through Friday, December 22nd.

Book Fair hours:

  • Monday: 11AM - 6PM
  • Tuesday - Thursday: 8AM - 6PM,
  • Friday 8AM -11AM

Students, teachers, and parents are invited to come to the Library at any time during school hours and after school to browse and to purchase books.

As the Chenery librarian, I am proud to say that Chenery is a community of readers! Our circulation is very high year to year, despite the growing trend toward ebooks and other online reading platforms. The “physical” book is still the preferred medium for many of today’s readers, particularly young children. The two main events to raise money to purchase school library books for your kids are the Book Fair and the Author Festival in the Spring. You can also buy gift books for your child’s teachers and, in doing so, support the Chenery Library!

We will also have two well-known and beloved authors with us during the Book Fair.

  • On Tuesday, December 19th, author Varian Johnson will provide writing workshops for all 7th graders, have lunch with interested students, and sign books in the Book Fair from 3-4pm in the Library. For more information see flyer
  • On Thursday, December 21st, author Chris Tebbetts returns to provide writing workshops for all 6th graders, attend the GSA for Social Justice meeting, and sign books in the Book Fair from 3-4pm in the Library. For more information see flyer

Many thanks to our generous PTO and Belmont Against Recism for their continued support of our author program.

Can’t make it into the Book Fair? Visit the Chenery Library Belmont Books wish list and purchase gift books for the lIbrary from that list!

Thank you Chenery Parents. Hope to see you at the FAIR!!!
