The Benefits of a Book Fair

Our different Book Fair packages offer you some fantastic benefits.


With a Book Fair at one of our stores, you can showcase student artwork and performers in our space, making your Book Fair a destination event for your school. This allows your community to shop our great selection of new, used, or bargain books; Husky Gear; supplies for school, art, or office AND have a percentage of those purchases go right back to you. (And they can take advantage of our FREE parking, FREE gift wrapping, and awesome customer service.)


With a book fair at your school, we can customize the selection of books we deliver to you, pick them up when the fair ends, and even provide a bookseller.


We even offer a hybrid store/school book fair package, so that busy families, faculty, and friends can have even more flexibility to shop during the school day, in the evening, and on weekends, which gives them even more opportunities to support your school.


And through our website, friends and family near and far can participate, supporting your school by shopping ubookstore.com. We keep track of their purchases with a unique book fair code entered at checkout.
