  2. Is this just for kid’s gear? Nope, the sale will have gear and clothing in both adult and child sizes.

  4. I want to volunteer, do I need to have pre-approved clearance? Nope, since this event is outside and not inside the building volunteers are not required to have completed the clearance forms.

Stock Up on Books for Summer Reading at the Book Fair This Week

Book Fair this week in the Hazel Wolf Library! This year we are partnering with Secret Garden Books in Ballard for our fair.  Parents can go to the Secret Garden website at:  https://www.secretgardenbooks.com/hazel-wolf-k-8-book-fair?couponHW

You can shop online or just see what will be available at the Library.  Instructions are available on the landing page of the website.  The virtual Book Fair where families can shop and purchase books through the Secret Garden website runs simultaneously.  If families order books through the site, they will be delivered to school for students to bring home and the Hazel Wolf Library still receives a portion of the sales!

 Students can shop at the Book Fair before school, during lunch recess and after school.  Classes will also be able to browse during their regular library times.  Dr. V will provide students with forms so they can create wish lists and families can budget and send appropriate funds with students (or shop together after school every day and until 6pm on Wednesday).  

Families can also purchase books from teacher wish lists for their classrooms!  Dr. V will be accepting credit cards, checks and cash.  A portion of all proceeds will go directly to the Hazel Wolf Library Fund to help build our collection 😊
