The Miquon Clisby Library will be hosting its annual book fair fundraiser during Conference Week, Mar 19-22. The Book Fair will be open in the afternoons and evenings for families to browse and shop before or after teacher conferences.

This year we are trying out a new vendor, Scholastic Book Fairs, and there will be some noticeable changes. For instance, you will be able to purchase and bring home the books right away. There is also an online purchasing option if you can’t make it to the Fair.

Proceeds go to purchasing more books for the library. Please join us!!

Keep an eye out for more information about the Book Fair in the upcoming weeks.
