Special to The Times
The Scholastic Book Fair will once again be hosted by Avery-Parsons Elementary Library and will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9 through Friday, Dec. 13.
A special Family Shopping Night will be Monday evening from 4-7 p.m. The fair will close Friday at noon. Families, teachers and community members are invited to attend.
A new feature called eWallet provides a safe, convenient payment option for students. It is a secure, cash-free, digital payment option wherein parents create an account at http://www.scholastic.com/bf/averyparsons with a spending limit, and all unused funds are released back to the cardholder.
Online shopping through the homepage is available Dec. 1-14. eWallet funds can be used online or at the fair.
The Book Fair offers popular series, award-winning titles, new releases, adult bestsellers and other great reads from dozens of publishers.
Proceeds from the fair will be used to benefit the library at Avery-Parsons Elementary.
