Special Announcement:

Coming Soon: Toolkit Login with Password Our Book Fair chairpeople have asked for a more secure login for the Toolkit - and it's coming later this fall! Your login to the Toolkit will be the same login and password as your Scholastic (global) login. You'll continue to use your email address as your user name, and we'll ask you to add a password. If you already have an account anywhere on the Scholastic website, you'll be all set. If you don't, you'll be asked to create a Scholastic account. The process only takes a few minutes. This means there will be just one Scholastic login to remember for the Toolkit or anywhere else on scholastic.com!

READ 100,000 Program Kicks Off New School Year with New Website
Read 100,000 One of the many benefits of a Book Fair is increased reading minutes throughout your school. Through the years, READ 100,000 has been a great way to track those minutes and encourage students to read more. When you visit the site this fall you will see a new design and great new features for educators, students and parents.

Workshops Offer Chance to Meet Chairpeople in Your Community
Workshop Book Fair Workshops provide many things - instruction on how to use equipment, a look at the latest books and merchandise available and information about new programs that can add value to your Fair. But another great part of the workshop experience is the opportunity to meet other Chairpeople. Workshops provide a forum to talk to others and share your ideas on how to manage, decorate and promote the Book Fair in your community.

Don't miss out. Start sharing your Book Fair ideas with your peers.
