Fall Usborne Book Fair | November 7-8, 2019
At the beginning of November, the ES Library will host its annual Fall Usborne Book Fair. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all parents to attend the fair. Please see the dates and times below:
- Thursday, November 7: Upper Lobby of the Palmer Center (11:15–17:00)
- Friday, November 8: Upper Lobby of the Palmer Center (8:00–17:00)
Parents are welcome to come anytime during opening hours. Homeroom teachers will bring their classes to the fair for a 30-minute block. While there, students will be able to purchase books directly or order them for later delivery. Here is how it works:
Children who bring money to school
They may select their books and make a direct payment. Some books may not be available upon purchase. These will be pre-paid and ordered. They will be delivered to the school library within 2–3 weeks.
Children who do not bring money to school
They may create a wish list (on a blue sheet of paper received at the fair) that will be sent home the same day. If parents approve of the book choices, students are asked to bring the correct amount of money (in Swiss Francs) the following day to give to their teachers, who will then pass it on to me. The books will be ordered and delivered to the ES Library within 2–3 weeks.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks for your support, and I look forward to seeing you at the fair.
Note: TBD indicates that the details of an event are "to be determined."
