For every librarian, who needs to raise money, a book fair is a necessity. As a former teacher, book fair was place for me to find some new books for my classroom. As the librarian, it's a lot of work. In the past I used Scholastic's book fairs. They have a really good book fair, but it's a LOT of work. Then, I found Backyard Book Fair. I'm in love. They arrive the Friday before my fair starts and set it up. Yes, they set it up. Then during my fair, they staff and run the fair. All I have to do is bring the students. (Oh yeah, and take their check at the end of the week!) I have serious library love for this company. If I have a book request, they try to find it for me. Love it! Can you tell I love Backyard Book Fairs? Ha.
If you are interested, give them a call. Be sure and tell Aaron he owes me a free book!!!
