Books for Bookworms

Dalvin Rawlinson had 10 bucks in his pocket and he was eager to spend it. The 11-year-old 6th grader spent some time searching for a good book recently at the Saluda Trail book fair.

Ms. Inman, Saluda Trail’s Media Specialist, helps Dalvin Rawlinson, a 6th grader, looks for books at the annual Fall Book Fair.

“I like buying books and reading them”- Rawlinson said. 

The Fall Book Fair was held November 12- 17 in the media center.  Saluda Trail usually has two book fairs a school year.

Students and teachers of Saluda Trail were able to buy books as well as some of the novelty items such as bookmarks, necklaces, invisible pens, markers, etc.

Students and staff could also shop online. The online shopping was easy.

Ms. Shelton, a volunteer for the book fair, said, “You just pull up the website which is .” 

Throughout each day teachers brought students in to browse and shop. There were many new books titles and sections at the fair this year, including The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, an animal section, and last but not least a scary section. 

Some popular titles were  The Meltdown and the Getaway, Maze Runner #2: The Scorch Trials, Shadow House #1: The Gathering, and of course the Goosebumps novels.

Ms. Inman,  Saluda Trail’s Media Specialist said $560 was raised from the scholastic book fair. “The money is used to buy more books,” Inman said.

According to Inman, the book fair is held each year as a fundraiser to not only purchase more books for the school but “to give students the chance to build their own home libraries.”

Dala Tinsley, an 8th grader, says she always enjoy shopping for books at the book fair.

“It also exposes students to titles they may be unfamiliar with,” she said. 

Overall, the BookFair was deemed a great success. Students always seem to enjoy the big selection and the quality of books.
