The Book Fair is Coming!:  Books make wonderful gifts, and the Memorial School Book Fair

will come just in time for the holiday gift giving!  The Fair will be held December 1st through December 9th right here in our library.  Please look for a notice during the last week in November, which will contain more detailed information, including times your child’s class is scheduled to visit the fair.  You are invited to join him or her and browse the fair together.  Research shows that children who own their own books are more likely to become better and more motivated readers.  We look forward to seeing you there!
