World Book Day & Book Fair

Dear Parents/Carers,


World Book Day

Come and join us to celebrate Reading at our Book Fair!


To celebrate World Book Day we are hosting a Book Fair, with hundreds of new children’s books to browse and buy. With prices starting from only £2.99, there’s sure to be a book for everyone.


When: Thursday 2nd March – Wednesday 8th March 2017

Times: 8:40 – 9:00am and 3:00 – 3:45pm

Where: The Library


If you are unable to attend the Book Fair, books can be purchased in the following ways:


  1. You can browse books online with your child at
    To make a purchase send the money or the discounted Gift Vouchers purchased online into the school office in an envelope clearly marked with your child’s name, class and title(s) of book(s)
  2. Your child can select their own book(s) during the school day. Please provide the money in an envelope clearly marked with their name and class and give it to your child or the school office.
    A mini catalogue will be sent home after half term. Please check your child’s school bag.

    On World Book Day the children are encouraged to DRESS UP as their favourite book character. There will be a COMPETITION for the best costumes with prizes of book vouchers to be used at the Book Fair. Half term will be the perfect time to prepare their fantastic costumes.

    Every child will also receive on the day a World Book Day £1 Book Token which can be spent at the Book Fair.
    To keep up-to-date with our Book Fair news log-on to our library blog at:
    Don’t forget that every book you buy can help towards FREE BOOKS for our school library!
    The last Book Fair was a huge success for St Joseph’s raising £1,100 in FREE BOOKS. We hope it can be even bigger and better this term. Thank you for your continued support.
