The Brackett Book Fair - Monday, 11/16 to Friday 11/20 - Volunteer and shop!


BooksThe Book Fair begins this coming Monday, Nov. 16th and runs through Friday, Nov. 20th with a FAMILY SHOPPING NIGHT on Thurs., Nov. 19 from 5:30-8pm.  For those of you unfamiliar with the Book Fair, Brackett partners with Book Ends bookstore in Winchester and we turn the Brackett Library into a book store for a whole week!
Parents: please give your child(ren) money to take with them to their regular library time at school.  Kids can buy books, bookmarks, pencils, puzzles, games and other items during their visit to the Book Fair (their normal library time).  We also have a wonderful tradition of having families buy books for teachers.  The teachers decide which books they would like for their classroom and we encourage children and parents to purchase books for them as well.  Parents are also welcome to join their children for book fair shopping during library time, but there will also be an opportunity to shop Thursday evening as well.
