All purchases will directly support our school!

And now grandparents, friends, and others can contribute to the eWallet to help build your home library! After the Fair, remaining eWallet funds are not returned to a credit card but instead, become a gift card balance that can be used online with Scholastic or to fund an eWallet for a future Book Fair. 
  • We also accept cash and checks payable to: Forts Ferry PTA
  • Shop Online: Experience the Book Fair fun by visiting our Book Fair online! You can shop over 6,000 products — and all orders ship direct to your home (with free shipping on book-only orders over $25*)!
