Virtual Scholastic Book Fair

Friends of the Modesto Library usually partners with Scholastic to host book sale fundraisers each year. This year sales are online. There is a NEW summer book fair with a NEW link, so you can buy books all summer long and support the mission of the library. 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 May 22-Sept. 4, 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.) Proceeds will be used to support the mission of your Modesto Library.

On your computer, tablet, or phone. No need to leave your home.

We’ve teamed up with the popular Scholastic Store online to offer an all-new Virtual Book Fair experience where customers can shop for exclusive titles, best-sellers, Raise a Reader Sets, collections, and more! Shoppers can take advantage of

  • free standard shipping on book-only orders over $25* and
  • all orders ship to the location of your choice (That can be your house, a niece/nephew, aunt/uncle, grandchild, or friend/neighbor. Or even to LearningQuest for their family literacy program.)

We are partnering with LearningQuest-Stanislaus Literacy Center to put more books in the hands of more children, as a way to stop the summer-time reading slide. Especially this strange-days summer.

Giving Tree Book Drive

July 1- July 31

Books are given to the children of LearningQuest students, in order to promote a foundation of literacy in the home. Unfortunately, they are unable to accept books personally dropped off. Books from Scholastic can be shipped to:


1032 11th St.

Modesto, CA 95354

Putting more books in the hands of more kids is one helpful thing we Stay-at-Homes can do this odd summer.

Thank you in advance for your continued support. – Anne
