The Usborne “Reading Is A Gift” book fair is coming to San Tan and your children can choose from hundreds of books that will pay our San Tan school library back with FREE BOOKS.

The Usborne “Reading Is A Gift” book fair starts the week of Tuesday, October 3rd. Everyone who is interested in giving the gift of learning is welcome! Teachers and children preview the books during the week and create their own Wish List of books to encourage donations to school and classroom libraries.

A percentage of the cost of every book purchased is returned back to our San Tan community library in FREE BOOKS. Everybody wins! Our goal is to encourage reading, promote literacy, and earn lots of free books.

Volunteers are needed to assist with the book fair.  If you are interested in volunteering, please click on the link here:
