    Our virtual book fair is a Win-Win: You get great books to read all summer AND the MVMS library gets new books that Ms. Palmer will be able to purchase with proceeds from our fair. The fair will be open until September, so come back to the book fair link when you need to re-stock your summer library.

     

    To make it super easy, orders will be delivered right to your doorstep (with FREE shipping on book-only purchases over $25).

     

    Feel free to reach out to MVMS Teacher-Librarian Jonna Palmer if you have questions about books or the fair.
