    The East Book Fair will be open December 4 - 8!

    It’s book fair time! Your student will have the opportunity to shop at the book fair in school during the week of December 4. Below is a list of the teachers signed up to bring students to the book fair, but students may also visit during study halls. There are many items for your child to purchase, including books, posters, pens, pencils, bookmarks, and more!

    We take the following payments -

    • Cash (small bills are appreciated
    • Credit cards
    • Apple Pay
    • Google Pay
    • Checks (made out to BMSE Activity Fund)
    • eWallet

    Students who pay with Apple Pay or Google Pay will be able to stop at their lockers to get their  phones before visiting the fair. Students will be able to donate their unwanted change to buy books that will be donated to the Boyertown Multi Service. 

    If you are unable to attend the book fair in person, visit our online fair. The online fair will be available from December 1-14.  Email our librarian, Mrs. Mento, at kmento@boyertownasd.org if you would like to pick up your books in the office. This is perfect if you plan on giving books later as gifts. 

    Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to 1.8 million words a year

    eWallet for Book Fair 

    Parents can create an account for their student and set a spending limit with eWallet. This is a digital payment that parents can set up starting on November 11. Students can use eWallet any day at the book fair. Visit the book fair homepage to create an account. After the Fair, remaining eWallet funds are not returned to a credit card but instead, become a gift card balance that can be used online with Scholastic or to fund an eWallet for a future Book Fair or donated to buy books for the Multi-Service holiday drive.  Be sure to sign in with the same email used to create the eWallet. You need to activate your eWallet account again to retrieve funds for this fair.

    The library has three carts of gently read books for students who cannot afford books from the fair. If you know a student who would benefit from books on this cart, please let me know.

    All purchases benefit our library. Thank you for supporting our readers!
