Republic School Libraries will be hosting an end-of-year book fair to give families and students an opportunity to purchase books for summer reading. Giving kids the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more, and this fair will surround students in the celebration of reading with hundreds of fun, engaging, affordable books for them to discover.
All proceeds from this book fair will be shared between the elementray and middle school libraries to provide resources for guest authors and illustrators to come and visit with our students! We have 2 special family nights planned. Both family events are for students from ALL Republic schools and will be located in the School Board Training room at Price Elementary (enter through Price's front doors). If you cannot make it to one of the events listed below, pleaase feel free to shop online at http://www.scholastic.com/bf/price
Book Fair Dates: Tuesday, April 25th and Thursday, April 27th
Shopping Hours: 3:45-6:30 pm
