CDS Book Fair

CDS Annual Book Fair

November 13-17, 2023

Come one, come all to the annual CDS Book Fair! It is going to be “SOME FAIR!” brought to you by the PA Friends of the Library. There will be books for all ages and reading levels, wish baskets for our teachers to stock their classroom libraries, and events throughout the week for the CDS community to enjoy. It’s also a perfect place to get some holiday shopping done early! A portion of every Book Fair sale directly supports our library programs, including the student Caldecott and Newbery medals and prize books, school-wide storytellers and visiting authors, and more. It’s going to be TERRIFIC and you won’t want to miss it!

A Grand Event for SOME FAIR!

Monday, November 13, 2023
3:00-5:30pm in the Oreck Library

Join us for a fun evening to celebrate the opening of CDS Book Fair 2023! We will have pizza, treats, and a special book signing visit from Robert Beatty, New York Times Best Seller author of the Serafina and Willa of the Woods series (and CDS parent!). Willy will also be joining us to help families shop and find the best books!



We love to see the RADIANT faces of volunteers!

We still need volunteers to help our students and families shop. If you are interested in helping the Friends of the Library with this TERRIFIC event please take a moment and find a volunteer slot or two.
