Book Fair

Every Fall, CSS hosts a Scholastic Book Fair. It is a great way to raise funds for the library, as well as get books in the hands of our community members.

We’ll be set up in the library from November 2nd through November 8th, and open during conferences on Nov 9th and 10th. Unlike other book fairs you may have attended, the CSS Book Fair is a literacy event. Our focus is on books, books, and more books. That means no toys, no stuffed animals, and no posters…just books! And as an added bonus, 60% of everything you spend comes back to our library as new Scholastic books. Last year, your generous support of the Book fair netted our students $2,800 worth of new books in the library.

The Book Fair will be open after school Wednesday, November 2nd through Tuesday, November 8th, except for Friday the 4th as there is no school that day. It will also be open during during conferences on Wednesday, November 9th from 8am-7:45pm and Thursday, November 10th from 8am-4:30pm.

If for some reason you can’t make it or you want to continue shopping from an expanded selection for all ages, you can visit the book fair online. Go to the CSS Book Fair home page at and then click the Shop Online link. The online fair dates are November 1 through November 21. All orders ship directly to the school and will be available about a week after the online book fair ends.
