I recently had the chance to interview Ms. Williams, the School Media Center Coordinator, to find out what went on during the Fall Book Fair that happened in October.
The book fair was, and will continue to be, an astounding way to earn money for the School's Media Center. At this particular event, MXMS raised around 5 to 6 thousand dollars. This amount represents Scholastic dollars. Different to other years, the layout for the book fair was made with more room and to help with sales. Also, the PTA night happened to coincide with the Book Fair. When setting up for the Book Fair, it seems that it really depends on the time that the school gets it- as one could predict, the earlier the better. I then asked Ms. William what could be done to help with later Book Fairs. She suggested she would like to do a better job advertising the Book Fair- with the hope of increasing participation. The final Book Fair for the year will be held on February 28th and thru March 9th.
