The St. Johnsbury School will host a Scholastic Book Fair from May 15-21 in the lower library. This spring's theme is "Book Fair Luau: it's a reading celebration!"

In preparation for the event, students were challenged to read 2600 books between April 15 and May 15. If this goal is reached, Dr. Martha Dubuque will kiss an alpaca or a llama during an all-school assembly. Classrooms will be involved in two competitions during the book fair-a coin challenge to benefit One for Books (proceeds will buy books for selected students at St. Johnsbury School) and a doorway decorating contest. The classroom bringing in the largest amount of money will choose $50 worth of books from the Book Fair for their classroom library. The classroom with the best doorway decorated in the Book Fair theme will also select $50 worth of books for their classroom library.

Students from grades 4-8 may enter a poster contest. One winner from each grade will receive a $5 certificate to the Book Fair.

Members of the community are invited to attend at any time, but the Book Fair will be open during the community dinner and "Our Green Earth" on May 17 for families to attend. Grandparents are invited to visit and have a special snack from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on May 18.

For further information, call the St. Johnsbury School library at 748-8912, ext. 1180. The Book Fair is a great place to get good books at affordable prices.
