School Spirit: Book Fair

There's nothing like the smell and feel of a new book—and we want the students at our partner schools, Greenway Park and Idlewild Elementary, to experience that joy and to grow in their love of reading. This spring, we have the opportunity once again to provide five brand-new books to each student, PreK-5th grade. The best part? They get to choose their five books from a carefully curated selection of books in their reading level.

To make these book fairs a success, we need your help!

  • 01

    To fully stock the shelves of our book fairs, we are purchasing over 9,000 books! Donate today to help cover the cost.

    • Drop a check in one of our giving boxes at either location, and include "School Spirit: Book Fair" in the memo line.
