By Yertle the Turtle, Book Fair Committee

Hello happy readers, we’re happy to share
That it’s time to get ready for this year’s Book Fair!
Wednesday, as you and yours celebrate
Our nation’s veterans and all they did great
We, plus a librarian or two,
Will transform the Library space just for you
Into a Book Shop to dazzle, delight,
And satisfy anyone’s book appetite!
Not only that, oh no, don’t fear we are done
We’ll also have gobs of stuff we call “fun”
To purchase for holidays or just because
We’ll have barrels of slime and animals of fuzz!

Moreover we have other pans in the fire
Authors and artists will come to inspire
And let’s not forget what goes well with bookies…
A big cup of milk and chocolate chip cookies!

Thursday will be our Preview Day
Then Friday we’ll jump right into the fray
Selling like hotcakes books from the stacks
Enough to fill up largish backpacks
Parents are welcome to shop any time
As long as you don’t mind speaking in rhyme
Just kidding…. we DON’T need more poets
But bring your wallet (or you can owe it)
By opening an account for all that you buy
Here’s a form to make purchases low, middle, and high!

We would love to have help selling and stocking
We’ll have much joy schmoozing and talking!
If you want to have fun while lending a hand
Click here to sell books or staff the Milk & Cookies Stand!
