Promote Summer Reading While Fundraising for Your School

Summer vacation is just around the corner, and while most students are excited to finally get a break from school, it can also mean a stop to learning and reading. As a parent or educator, you know how crucial it is to encourage kids to continue reading during summer break, to prevent the dreaded "summer slide." Luckily, there is a way to promote summer reading while also fundraising for your school, and it involves an online book fair tailored to your educators' and librarian's summer reading lists. 

How does it work? An online book fair will be created specifically for your school, featuring the summer reading lists created by your teachers and librarians.The books available for purchase through the book fair will be shipped directly to homes and a portion of the sales will be directed back to your classroom or library. This means that not only will you be promoting summer reading, you'll also be supporting your school and the hard-working teachers and librarians who make it a great place for kids to learn.

An online fundraiser saves you time and effort compared to traditional fundraisers, where you need to spend a lot of time and energy organizing activities and managing logistics. An online book fair takes care of everything, from promoting the books to making purchases, which means you can focus on what's important – promoting reading and supporting your school. Tailoring the book fair to your educators' and librarian's summer reading lists ensures that you receive relevant and high-quality reading material, which will encourage your students to engage with the books.
