Due to COVID, Porter Square Books is now offering online book fairs! In this model, your school schedules a 1-2 week fair. During this time, school members can purchase any available books on our website or in-store (if the store is open). When checking out, a coupon code is entered, which tracks the book fair sales. School members can opt for curbside pick up, or to have their purchases shipped.
At the end of the fair, we will run a report to see the total sales, and give the school 10% of these sales. This can be used however the school desires!
For online book fairs, you can use gift cards for your purchases, order adult as well as children's books, and are not limited to a set list of books. You can even create classroom and library wishlists where school members can purchase books for donation to the school! We've found that the most successful fairs incorperate the fair into online schooling, having students share books or make book trailers, create webpages, or do book talks in library classes.
We do hope to do physical book fairs when it is safe to do so, but we realize this may be some time. In the meantime, we are happy to be able to offer this online model.
