GIFT CERTIFICATES (Deadline is Wednesday, November 7th)

Go Cash-less with E-Wallet

Scholastic has launched a new program making it easy for students to buy books without bringing cash in an envelope.  Simply visit our Scholastic Book Fair homepage, scroll down to the E-Wallet section, and follow the prompts.  You will be able to set up credit an amount of your choosing to your child’s account using your credit card.   Whatever your child doesn’t spend is automatically returned to your credit card after the fair.   If possible, please print the receipt with your child’s name, account number, and the amount they have available to spend and send this to school with your child.  We can also look this up for them but it will be faster and easier for them if they have it on hand.


Of course we are still happy to accept cash! On the day of your class visit, please send your child with the cash in a re-sealable envelope with your child’s name, class, and amount of money enclosed.

Don't forget TAXES 

We MUST collect NY states sales tax of 8.875% on every purchase.  Please make sure to calculate this expense when sending money with your kids for their class visits.  Extra dollars or coins are very helpful for this. 


We need lots of volunteers to help us make this pop-up book store another memorable one.  Please join us to set up, restock, and help our children choose from an extensive variety of reading adventures.  There is nothing like the feeling you get from helping a child find a book that will inspire them, make them smile, and discover the love of reading.  It is a true joy to volunteer at this event!



Each Class will have the opportunity to visit and shop at the Book Fair during the school day.  Volunteers will be readily available to assist your child in finding the book that is perfect for him/her.  Your teacher will let you know date and time of your class visit.  Most books range in price from about $6 to $20, not including tax.

All For Books

We will once again be participating in the All For Books program.  Through this program, our families can donate money for another school to buy books or purchase books at our fair to be donated to another school. Every dollar we contribute to the All For Books program (either through cash donations or book purchases) will be matched by Scholastic. Please consider contributing to this program when you shop at the Book Fair and encourage your children to drop their extra coins into the All for Books donation box when they shop with their class.

ONLINE BOOK FAIR (November 4-17th)

 If you cannot make it to the fair, you can always visit us at the PS87 Online Book Fair from Nov. 4-17, 2018.  You can choose from thousands of books.  This is a great opportunity to start your holiday shopping! Purchases via our online Book Fair will be delivered free of charge directly to your child's classroom.  Please share this link with your friends and family near and far!
