The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to KMS February 3 through February 10, 2017! Everyone is very excited for the book fair this year as there are many new books coming. It is going to be held in the Library conference room. We decided to interview our amazing librarian to find out more about the upcoming Book Fair!
When Alex asked, Ms. Rodriguez “How much do you usually make at a book fair? “ She replied with the astonishing price of $2000 dollars, but there is a catch.
“We only get to keep 40% of the amount of money, so we have about $800 dollars for the school.”
The average price for a book is about $8.99. At the Scholastic Book Fair they sell not only books, but they sell little toys as well. When we asked Ms. Rodriguez whether or not people spend more money on the toys or books she replied saying that we spend more money on the little toys. Her recommendation on a book was Serafina and the Twisted Staff. There is a picture of the book so if you are interested in learning more about the book you can find it at the Book Fair. We asked if she thought this Book Fair was going to be successful and her reply was that she thought it was going to be very successful!
She is going to be open late on Literacy Night so there should be a lot of success there. The Book Fair has a lot of things to look forward to such as the various books and posters.
Ms. Rodriguez, has worked very hard to prepare for this Book Fair. She set up all the books and made the conference room look amazing. Show your support and show up to the to the KMS book fair!
