We are a community of readers!
Book Fairs are held to promote literacy, to celebrate the joy of reading, and to inspire children and their families to share great books. Children are very motivated to read the books they select. Our book fairs give every child a chance to select and enjoy wonderful books at reasonable prices.
Children learn by example. Parents who read to their children and with their children are wonderful role models. When children see this example, they realize that reading is important in their families and that books are treasures. Our book fairs give parents and students a chance to shop for books together and to select books they will enjoy sharing.
Book fairs inspire camaraderie and conversation about books. The librarian has a chance to talk to students and parents about books they might enjoy. Volunteers talk to students and parents and to each other about books they have discovered or read. Children tell their friends about books they've read and can recommend. Teachers share their recommendations and have the opportunity to request books for use in their classrooms. For one whole week, we are all focused on literacy.
Profits from the book fair are shared by the PTA and the library. The PTA receives cash and the library receives books. The PTA uses the cash profit to fund excellent programs for Beverly students. A yearly author visit and AR are two examples of programs funded in part by book fair profits. Books for our library enhance our collection and provide students with a variety of books, both fiction and nonfiction, that they enjoy reading.
