Book Fair: November 29-December 1

November 07, 2022
By Leslie Wachter, Media Center Specialist

Our annual Book Fair is the week after Thanksgiving Break! We look forward to welcoming back Little Shop of Stories (LSOS), an independent bookstore in Decatur. LSOS offers a selection of affordable books, including the newest titles for every reading level. We invite parents to sneak in a few minutes of holiday shopping without their children - the perfect book always makes a great gift!  All proceeds go directly back to Springmont's Media Center.

Shopping Hours:
• Tuesday - Thursday 8:30 a.m.- 3. p.m. (Extended hours on Wednesday afternoon until 4 p.m.)

Student Shopping:
• Half Day Toddler and Half Day Primary students may shop with their parents after mid-day dismissal carpool. 
• On Monday afternoon, older Primary students who do not nap will come with their class to preview and create wishlists, which will be sent home. Parents may then use these lists to shop during the week. If you would prefer your child shop with their Teacher, please send $15-$25 cash in a labeled envelope. (This option is only for children who do not nap.)
• Elementary and Middle School students may shop independently throughout the week. Children should bring cash in a labeled envelope. Parent volunteers will assist children with selection and payment. Typically, $20-$25 will cover the price of 2-3 paperback books.

The Book Fair also gives teachers an opportunity to enhance their classroom libraries. Teachers will preselect books that will be set aside for them. If you'd like to purchase a classroom gift book, we can add one to your purchase!

All purchases will be rounded up to the nearest dollar to fundraise for United Through Reading, an organization that helps the children of active military personnel bond with their deployed parents through reading.
