The book fair will feature several celebrity guest readers throughout the day and will showcase musical talents of District 186 students from elementary school to high school. Proceeds from the book fair will be used to purchase books for school libraries throughout the district. You may also purchase a book from a school’s wish list and be entered to win a NOOK HD! Don’t forget to stop by the Foundation’s Welcome Table to register to win a gift basket valued at $100! There will be lots of activities to keep children entertained: face painting, crafts, a scavenger hunt and meeting Skippyjon Jones! Middle school students are invited to participate in our own game show “Are You Smarter Than A Middle School Student?” from 3-4pm. Print a voucher from the website or tell the cashier you’re there to support the book fair.
