The Washington Township Elementary Library will host a Scholastic Book Fair Oct. 11 through 16 during school hours to help raise funds for the Library. The fair will also be open Oct. 16 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. during a Chili Supper/Open House.

The Chili Supper will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Washington Township Gymnasium by donation. Parents, children, teachers and the community are invited.

The Book Fair goal is to have $2,250 in sales. Book fair sales from last year totaled $2068.95. Washington Township Elementary School will receive 25 percent of total sales in cash profit. All profits will be used for new items for the WT Library and computer lab.

The fair will feature specially priced books and educational products, including newly released works, award-winning titles, children's classics, interactive software and current bestsellers from more than 150 publishers.

"The book fair brings children, teachers and families together within a school and community to celebrate reading and learning," said Miranda Kral, Mid-Prairie K-12 teacher-librarian.

Fair attendees can also help build classroom libraries by purchasing books for teachers through the Classroom Wish List program.
