On Friday September 13, you might have noticed a change in the library as displays went up and stacks of brand new books were arranged. MSJ’s library will be hosting a book fair from Monday, September 16 to Friday, September 20. Most of the books will be popular teen and young adult novels. However, books from a variety of genres will also be on sale – including fiction, nonfiction, how-to guides, graphic novels, children’s books, biographies, and humor – for a wide range of age groups. There will even be some autographed books on sale as well, including Somebody, Please Tell Me Who I Am by Peter Lerangis and Furious by Jill Wolfson.
Books will also be available to request or reserve. Students should talk to a librarian to request a book and make a deposit. The librarians will contact them later about the books when they arrive, or hold the books until the student can pay. MSJ students can also ask parents to buy books and pick up orders for them, as the book fair will be open during Back to School Night on September 19. It will also provide another chance for students to go to the book fair outside of school hours.
Along with helping you get books of your own, you will also help the library buy new or popular books in months to come. All of the proceeds from the book sales will go to buying new books.
