Sorry we can’t let you physically walk through and shop at a usual Scholastic Book Fair this year. But you can do it virtually! Visit our NEW link where you’ll see our virtual book fair listed as Stanislaus County Free Library. No need to “sign in;” just click “no thanks” to get started shopping.
When you shop from Nov. 2 – 15, the Friends earn a credit equal to 25% of your purchase. (Please don’t use the earlier online book fair link to shop, because it now gives us only a 2% profit.) You can continue shopping after the 15th, but we will earn only a 2% profit once the sale officially ends. Proceeds will be used to support the mission of your Modesto Library.
On your computer, tablet, or phone. No need to leave your home.
Online Scholastic Book Fair!
Until Nov. 15, 2020
We’ve teamed up with the popular Scholastic Store online to offer an all-new Online Book Fair experience where customers can shop by age, grade level, or individual titles.
Let your kids browse the shelves for their own selections. You can shop at our virtual book fair and enjoy:
- Free shipping for orders of books $25 or more.
- Ship anywhere: your house, the neighbors, grandkids, your favorite charity in need.
- Books for children and teens or generally, the young at heart.
- Deliveries arrive in 3-10 days.
Stock up for holidays, birthdays, vacations, even road trips during these quiet stay-at-home days. Or fill up your guest room or a local Little Free Library. Friends of the Modesto Library uses the credit we earn to support the mission of Modesto Library. Everybody wins! Questions? Contact Anne Britton at (209) 996-1531.
How does this help the library? Your shopping means the Friends of the Modesto Library earns credit that will be used to support the mission of your Modesto Library: FOML earns 25% of the price!
Are the books safe? Scholastic implemented a series of preventative health and safety measures at warehouse and storage facilities across the country to keep everyone safe. CDC agrees that the risk of spread from packages is incredibly low because of the time it takes shipments to get from the warehouse (more than two days) to your door.
How long to receive the books? 3-10 days – and you can track the shipment
*What is NOT eligible for Free Shipping? Toys, Games, Arts & Crafts, large, overweight, or unusually shaped items, books and book sets containing non-book components
Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and healthy. – Anne Britton
