Book Fair Deemed A Great Success

 Saluda Trail  Wildcats had an opportunity in October to build their libraries when Mrs. Ellison, the new media specialist, hosted a Fall Scholastic Book Fair. The book fair provided wildcats an opportunity to shop for numerous books, posters, and trinkets. 

Mrs. Marzoratti, Saluda Trail’s Media Clerk, helps Mrs. Compton, Saluda Trail’s ESOL teacher with some purchases during the fall Book Fair.

Many students and staff said they enjoyed visiting the pop-up bookstore. “There was an assortment of books,” said Victoria Eiler, a 7th grader.  “There was romance, horror, and drama.”

Other popular books on hand were Manga, Dragon Ball, Dark Room, Murder She Wrote, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Five Nights at Freddy’s. “I enjoyed seeing all my favorite books, and books from Youtubers and my idols,” said Kota Brooks, a 7th grader. 

When students entered the media center, they were led to the metal bookshelves that lined a section of the room. Many went from section to area exploring different genres, like horror, romance, Manga.

Students had a variety of genres to choose from.

“My favorite part of the book fair is looking at the books and other things they sell,” said A’niaya Elliot, an 8th grader. 

According to Mrs. Ellison, graphic novels were the most popular books at this year’s fair, along with others. “Dragon Ball was very popular;  we had to call in more because they were sold out,”  Mrs. Ellison added. 

The book fair not only provided books for students and staff, but was also a fantastic way for the media center to raise money.  Mrs. Ellison said this year, the school made 2,498 dollars which will be used to purchase more books “We also purchased an inflatable indoor-outdoor screen and hope to have a movie day during the next book fair,” she said. 

Mrs. Ellison  said the turnout was good.  “ We made over the money an average book fair would make,” she added. 

The media specialist  said that she wants to learn from each book fair and “make each one better.” 

Students enjoyed looking at the different items for sale at the book fair.

If you missed the fall book fair, don’t worry.  Mrs. Ellison said there will be another opportunity to shop for books from April 24-28 at the following book fair.
