The annual Book Fair generates excitement about books, literacy, and reading. It offers opportunities for parents and guardians to witness our students' enthusiasm for books and to purchase books for family, friends, teachers, the Redwood Day Library, and classroom collections. Come by and shop during drop-off, at pick-up until 6 p.m., and until 8 p.m. on Wednesday evening.
While the primary purpose of this event 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 $30,576--an increase from the previous year--and we contributed $6,115 to Redwood Day!
Due to the generosity of the Redwood Day community, we were also able to provide $1,575 (a big increase from the previous year!) to Temple Sinai's People of the Book Literacy Project through our BookShare program. They used the money to purchase 241 new books, and they also received 123 used books donated by Redwood Day families. These books go a long way in 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!
