Our annual Book Fair is a Redwood Day tradition. For one week, the gallery and library become a bookstore serving our book-loving community. The Book Fair provides an opportunity for parents and guardians to witness our students’ enthusiasm for books, as well as a chance to buy books for family, friends, teachers, the Redwood Day library, and classroom collections. We are proud to offer books for all ages, including a well-curated selection of fiction and non-fiction for adults and teens, in addition to a substantial assortment of wonderful picture books, early readers, chapter books, graphic novels, and more for kids. Come by and shop during drop-off, at pick-up until 6 p.m., and until 8 p.m. on Wednesday evening. We will be open until noon on Friday.
New this year, our community will have the opportunity to shop at Books Inc.’s online store using a special Redwood Day coupon code. By using the code REDWOODDAY19 at checkout when shopping at www.booksinc.net
between November 25 and December 9, your purchase will be counted toward our Book Fair proceeds.
While the primary purpose of the Redwood Day Book Fair is to promote literacy, the love of books, and reading in our community, we also raise money for our school and our partner organization, BookShare. Last year, book sales totaled $27,500 and we contributed $5,500 to Redwood Day!
Due to the generosity of the Redwood Day community, we were also able to provide $1,430 to Temple Sinai's People of the Book Literacy Project through our BookShare program. They used the money to purchase 240 new books, and they also received used books generously donated by Redwood Day families. These books go a long way toward supporting children in the Oakland community who do not have access to good books.
Please join us for one of Redwood Day's most beloved events!
