Book Fair Thanks!

From the Amy Neale Library

We had an amazing Book Fair Week!  We didn’t meet our goal of $16k…we exceeded it!  We sold $18k – a new record!  This means over $4k in support for the library.  This money will go for books, materials, furniture, and programs in the library.  Watch future bulletins for updates.  Thank you, Driscoll families, for your incredible support!

This year’s book fair featured our first ever evening event.  A big thank you to Dr. Talukdar for being our guest reader for story time.  She was fabulous, and the turnout far exceeded our expectations.  Another first this year was the Driscoll Loves Books initiative, which put book fair books in the hands of students who may not have been able to purchase a book.  This program was made possible by the Family Giving Campaign.

And finally, a huge thank to all our amazing volunteers (parents, grandparents, children) who staffed the book fair this week and our incredible book fair committee: Victor Kusmin, Nadine Abu-Jawdeh, Claudia Olivetti and chair Meg Brackley.  They spent countless hours preparing for the book fair, then pretty much lived in the library during it.  Thank you!!
