2021 St. John School Book Fair

Book Fair Image


Your school is hosting an online and in person book fair October 14-15, 2021. Your book fair will be at Chapters Books & Gifts in our downtown Seward location. Shop from 9 am - 7 pm October 14 and 9 am-5 pm October 15.

All purchases at Chapters' downtown Seward store October 14-15 will earn free books for your school library. Purchases by friends of your school from Chapters' online store October 11-17 also earn free books for your school.

You're welcome to order any book from Chapters' online store, but if you're overwhelmed by the possibilities, here are a few favorites for this fall. If the books you want aren't on these lists, search Chapters' online store by entering a book's title or author in the search bar in the red band above.

Be sure to check out the Teacher Wish Lists/Library Wish List if your school's staff has created one. Purchase books from this list to donate to your school. Your purchase will also earn credit toward more free books!

For any books to be delivered to your school, choose "Pick up in store" as your shipping option. When you place your order, leave a note in the comments with your child's name, teacher, and school, so we can deliver your books and credit your purchase. If there's anything else we need to know (such as that your purchase contains gifts, or who should be listed as the donor for books purchased from teacher wish lists, for instance), leave that in the comments, too.

Encourage out of town relatives and friends to purchase books during your school's book fair. We'll ship their books to them and count their purchase toward your school's book fair. All they need to do is indicate in the comments what school their purchase should support.

Please note, sometimes buyers have difficulty with pop ups when using our online store on a phone, and some browsers work better than others. If you're having trouble completing your purchase, try a computer or a different browser. If you're still having trouble, email us, and we're happy to help complete your purchase.

This is where you start your search for wonderful books! Shop the following lists for suggestions, or search Chapters' entire online catalog by entering a title or author in the search bar above.
