$1,800 (that’s 25% of the total book fair sales)

$804 in Scholastic books

$75 in library donation jars

92 books purchased for classroom teachers

Thank you to all the volunteers who set up, organized, cashiered and packed up the book fair:

Hillary Hayden, Michelle Show, Jenna Ashley, Laura Lahm, Rebecca Graves, Janel London, Fabrice Debry, Kim Cannova, Suzanne Mason, Donna Rueth, Julie Wittmann, Lucie Campbell, Amy Young, Ellen Robinson, Brit Dietrich, Casey Castaneda, Julie Mayer, Erica Bigelow and Tracey Crouch.

Thank you to my all-star book fair coordinators Tracey Crouch and Erica Bigelow.  Their extra time and efforts helped make the book fair run smoothly for all. 

Finally, thank you to Mr. Bruce, JSIS custodian, who cleaned up the building and waved goodbye to all the ghosts and ghouls by the end of the night.

Muchas Gracias, Arigato and Thank You!

Happy Reading,

~ Ms. Kathleen

About Ms. Kathleen!



Becoming a children’s librarian is the fulfillment of one of my dreams. I started out as a classroom teacher and later as a special education teacher working with students who struggled with learning disabilities. I decided to become a children’s librarian because I wanted to ignite a love of reading in all students – especially the ones who struggled with reading.    Now that I’m a librarian, I try to stock the library full of titles that will lure reluctant readers into picking up books. Since JSIS is an international school, I also strive to expose children to books that teach about different cultures or share a global world view. Please stop by the library to say hello – or better yet, check out a book and go home and read it!
