Kidspace Book Fair

Welcome to your Book Fair, Kidspace!

We have brought an in-person book fair into your center for many years, but this year is different! Like last year, your book fair is online this year, as well as at our shop on Market Street. All purchases you make here from 4-15 October benefit your center's library, just like always. Everything you buy in person in the shop on 9 October count, too! (We are open for your in-person book fair from 11-5). Your books purchased online will be delivered to the Center.

If you haven't shopped our site before, you'll have to create an account. PLEASE ENTER KIDSPACE INTO THE COUPON BOX AT CHECKOUT, if it isn't automatically there, so your purchase counts toward the book fair.

Below is a list of books recommended especially for your students. The list includes Washington Library Association's 2021 Children's Choice Picture Book and Easy Reader nominees and winners.

Please call Book Fair Manager Marie or shop owner Christy if you have any questions! Thank you for supporting a local independent business which, in turn, supports your center!

Happy Shopping!
