How does BOGO work?
For each item you buy, you can choose another item for the same or lower price for FREE.
Is everything Buy-One-Get-One FREE?
Yes, everything. For each item you buy, you can choose another item for the same or lower price for FREE.
What if I buy 100 books?
You can choose 100 more for free.
Do I pay for the most expensive books?
Yes and no.
If you buy only two items, you pay for the higher priced item (or they can both be the same price).
If you buy four or more items, you pay for every other item from highest to lowest price. Example:
You buy 6 items priced $6, $11, $14, $2, $3 and $6
The register automatically sorts these by price high-to-low: $14, $11, $6, $6, $3, $2
You pay for every other item: $14, $11, $6, $6, $3, $2
So you pay for the $14, $6, and $3 items. You get the $11, $6, and $2 items for free.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes. We accept all major credit cards and most debit cards. We also accept cash.

We can't afford books. Is my child being left out?
During the Book Fair we share many of the books as read-alouds with all the children.
Miss Kay's story: I grew up loving books. The Book Fair was one of my favorite times of year, even though I never bought a book. My family just didn't have enough money. But I loved looking at all the new books. I thought Book Fairs were so much fun! I knew that when the Book Fair was over, my librarian would buy many of those books and put them on our library shelves so I could read them. I hope my students feel the same love and excitement for new books, and I look forward to purchasing their favorites to add to our library.
