Book Fair

The PTO hosts 2 book fairs each year. All of the proceeds from the October book fair are donated to the Adams Media Center. The PTO forgoes a profit in the April buy-one-get-one book fair to pass awesome savings on to Adams families.

What do volunteers do? The committee chairs communicate with Scholastic and the media specialists, organize, promote, set up & run the week-long book fairs. At least 20 more volunteers are needed to help set-up, tear-down, and work shifts selling books.

Who should volunteer? If you love reading and value getting books in kids’ hands, this is the committee for you! For volunteers, this is a fantastic, time-limited way to make a meaningful contribution to the school. Plus, for each shift you work, you earn a $5 credit to spend at the book fair!
Admittedly, chairing the book fair is a true part-time job twice/year; however, it is worth it! The book fair is the most popular event/activity among Adams families, plus the fall book fair raises around $3,000 for the Media Center!
