About the Book Fair

Did you know that a percentage of all Book Fair sales are donated back to the MRC for the purchase of new books? Your participation directly supports our school and we appreciate your support! Anderson’s Book-fair Company utilizes over 200 publishers and carries the widest and most diverse selection of children’s books anywhere.  Andersons is a local, family owned business that has been serving the reading needs of northern Illinois for nearly 135 years.  They also provide authors for school author visits free of charge.

Fall Book Fair

Come visit the Gym for our Fall Book Fair with Anderson’s on Thursday, October 19, Friday, October 20 as well as during Family Reading Night on Thursday, 10/19 from 6:00-8:00pm!  The schedule for the day and time of your child’s classroom visit to the book fair is listed below.  You may either send money with your child or you are welcome to meet your child at the book fair.  Grades 1-5 will visit with their classes during the school day. (While Kindergarten will not visit the fair with their class, we would love to have you visit before or after drop-off or pick-up with your child.) Anderson’s provides a great selection of books for all ages. Plus, there will be an opportunity to pre-order the highly anticipated Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Meltdown (release date, Oct. 30.)
