GHE Virtual Book Fair

Calling all readers! Genesee Hill PTA is partnering with the local bookstore Paper Boat Booksellers to offer a virtual book fair. The fair started June 1st and will run through  June 14th, and Genesee Hill Elementary will receive a credit of 25% of all sales to spend on books for the school library. From reticent readers to bold bibliophiles – all are welcome to fill up on books for the summer! Check out the fair here.

If you’re looking for ideas for books to buy, SPS created this fantastic summer reading list with options for each grade. Also, the book fair has wonderful librarian-curated lists for different categories. Enjoy!

The Fine Print:

  • All purchases on Bookshop will be shipped from the wholesaler’s warehouse directly to the purchasers (or to gift recipients). There is not an option for in-store pickup. Please allow 7-10 days for shipping for books in stock.
  • There is a shipping charge for all purchases, but Bookshop also discounts most books between 8-10%, which covers much of the shipping costs.
