The Unquiet Library will host its Winter 2007 Book Fair December 3-7in the media center! This year’s fair will feature YA favorites Stephenie Meyer, Alex Horowitz, Alice Hoffman, Caroline Cooney, and more! Mystery, manga, historical fiction, thrillers—we will have all these genres next week at our book fair!
All profits from our book fair will be donated to New Orleans school libraries as they are still struggling to rebuild their collections as they still recover from Hurricane Katrina. Our participation in the One for Books program will not only benefit libraries, but it will also help non-profit organizations that strive to help families and children—Scholastic will match our money raised dollar for dollar! We will be sponsoring a “loose change” drive competition between our English classes here at Creekview. Students in individual classes are asked to bring the following on these days:
- Monday, 12/3: Pennies
- Tuesday, 12/4: Nickels
- Wednesday, 12/5: Dimes
- Thursday, 12/6: Quarters
- Friday, 12/7: Any coins or dollar contribution!
The winning class period will be treated to a pizza party by The Unquiet Library! In addition, students, parents, and teachers may make a $1 contribution next week when they check out a book or purchase a book from the book fair! All donors can fill out a slip and go on our “Hall of Fame” as we work hard to raise money for New Orleans public school libraries!
