This year’s Spring Book Fair is scheduled for June 6th-8th (with orders through the SFX Library accepted beginning June 5th) at The Book Stall in Winnetka. A full 20% of your purchase benefits SFX School – be sure to tell The Book Stall that you are shopping for St. Francis Xavier to claim our library credits! We promise lots of fun, including an exciting raffle for all those who visit the store and submit an entry form (one per child, please!). Prizes will be awarded to individual entries and to the class with the highest attendance. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with questions.
This year we encourage families to stock up on summer reading titles – just in time for the start of summer vacation! Middle School students should also check here to learn which required summer reading books can be purchased this week at the fair. Hours for the fair are:

All donated books will be delivered to Bernie’s Book Bank, an organization that provides books to Chicago area low-income children who don’t have their own books at home to read. Learn more about Bernie’s Book Bank here. Books will be collected in the library during the SFX Book Fair.
