Great Northern Book Co. Book Fair, Sept. 11

Join the Poly Drive Family for the Great Northern Book Co. Book Fair next Thursday, Sept. 11, from 2:20 to 7 p.m. in the Poly Drive library.

Ron and Barb Scherry, owners of Great Northern Book Co., a Montana business, will be providing the upcoming book fair for Poly Drive. The Scherrys were well-known educators in Montana before retiring and buying the book company in 2000. This reading event will offer students, parents, teachers, and members of the community the opportunity to see the latest works by popular authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults. Along with winners of state and national awards, the book fair will present hundreds of titles selected to excite and motivate students to become lifelong readers and to promote family literacy. Special attention is given to find books that will appeal to the emergent, the experienced, and the reluctant reader. Books for all members of the family will be available, from birth through adult.

Ron and Barb are on hand in the evening to meet parents and help them with their selections. This fundraising activity encourages good reading habits, and the school’s proceeds are used to purchase new library materials.
