Another Successful Book Fair is in the Books!

Another successful summer book fair is in the books! Last Thursday, we had the opportunity to hand out picture books and chapter books to 300 summer school students at Glacier Ridge Elementary School which is part of Crystal Lake Elementary District 47. Each student was able to pick three books which gave us a total of 900 books delivered to some very happy readers.

It felt so special to watch these students peruse through the assortment of books and find ones that sparked their interest. It felt even better when students then planted themselves in chairs (in the middle of the book fair) to start reading.

Happy summer reading!
