The school fair is coming up.
It can be a great source for Christmas and birthday presents.
– Giving the gift of reading!
As a school MEI receives credit from the sales from the book fair
A portion we choose to donate to H2H to help them instill the joy of reading through their library.
Another portion we use to buy directly from Scholastic at a discounted price and the rest we receive as cash to purchase from other sources.
We are proud to have a large collection of books from classics to current and strive to provide one of the best school library collections to meet the demands of our voracious readers.
Our library budget has significantly decreased from $5500 in 2009 to $3000 this year.
A large portion of this budget goes to our technological subscriptions, magazine subscriptions, supplies and public performance rights.
For this reason, we appreciate dividends to keep up with replacements and new materials.
This year the Library would like to use some of the dividends to replace a portion of our VHS with DVDs and have some which are no longer available for purchase (and where copyright allows) be transferred to the newer format.
Thank you for all your support! Enjoy the fair!
We look forward to seeing you there
