CMS Library Hosting Book Fair September 19–26

Colchester Middle School is hosting a book fair in the library media center (please click here to see the new website!) from September 19 to September 26, 2013. The book fair will be open every day between 7:30 a.m. and 2:10 p.m.

Interested in what the CMS Scholastic Book Fair has to offer? You’re invited too! Come to the CMS library media center during the extended hours on Wednesday, September 25 from 2:10 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The CMS library media center also has a new digital look that we would love our community members to see. Features include browsing Destiny (the online library catalog) from any web-based device, keeping up to date with the book of the week, and the ability to familiarize oneself with recommended websites and resources.

The fair is provided by children’s book publisher Scholastic, and proceeds from the fair support programs and materials for CMS’s library, benefiting our students and providing them with new opportunities to add to their personal book collections.

CMS has a book fair fundraising goal this year of $4,000 … and if that goal is met, CMS librarian Lisa Buckton will wear her zaniest outfit and a hot-pink wig to school (and she might even convince some of the other CMS teachers to join her)!

Among the fair’s offerings are some of the Dorothy Canfield Fisher (DCF) Reading Award titles for this year. (We have talked about this program in the past; click here to read that article.)
