Book Fair!

Dear Parents and Families:

We are excited to announce we are hosting a book fair next month in conjunction with the opening of our new music building. Mark your calendars for May 10 – 14. Students will be allowed to browse and purchase books during their Library and Media times that week. 

The average print date of books here in our library is 1995. Your purchase at the Book Fair helps to modernize our library collection. With updated resources, we can continue to encourage and develop students’ love of reading. In addition, we can provide invaluable sources of support to classroom teachers and help teachers gather a range of texts to meet diverse interests of students. 

In an effort to make the fair as low touch as possible, we are encouraging families to purchase Book Fair gift cards in advance. Any family member can visit the website below, select your gift card amount and email it or print it for your child to use.  Our Book Fair volunteers will also have access to each child’s gift card balance to debit purchases. After the fair, any leftover balance can be redeemed on the Follet online store, at our next Follett Book Fair, or you can donate the balance to help support our library. There’s no expiration date for your book fair gift card! For more information, please refer to the back of this letter. To purchase your gift card visit: PRINT YOUR RECEIPT AND HAVE YOUR CHILD BRING IT TO THE FAIR.

If you are unable to join our book fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at Our online fair is open now through May 14. Visit and use our book fair code M2E77 when making purchases.

We hope you’ll join us in making this a successful event and thank you in advance for your generosity. 

Happy Reading!

Your Turtle Rock Elementary Media Team
