Reading  Takes You Places!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be held at the Hamilton library May 3rd through the 7th.  We will be opening on Monday to the sixth graders, Tuesday to seventh, and Wednesday to eighth grade.  Thursday and Friday will be for those students who were unable to attend or purchase on the first three days.  While there are many methods of payment, one of the more exciting and new methods is called the e-wallet.  It works on a declining balance, so you put money into the e-wallet and your child will spend it at the book fair.  If you have more than one child attending the book fair, you will need to set up separate wallets for each.  It has the advantage of your child not carrying or losing cash, or spending it on things you did not intend for them to spend it on.  It is a secure transaction, and is free of fees.  For more information visit Hamilton’s book fair page, at and click on the e-wallet option.  Also, while there, feel free to shop in either the virtual fair or the online store.  A percentage of all purchases online come back to the school.  Happy reading!
