virtual book fairs


Your community learns—your organization earns.

Background

Staying true to our motto “Growing Fine Minds,” we developed our Virtual Book Fair service in hopes of partnering with like-minded groups to encourage children to read deeply and steer away from low quality and commercial titles. By providing year-round access to quality literature and educational games we offer you a fundraising opportunity that requires minimal effort but greatly rewards your organization and your community alike.

Our philosophy

We believe that good literature has the power to provoke thought, spark imagination, and shape character. It reinforces the concepts essential to civilized society: courage, compassion, integrity, goodness and gratitude. Books bring these gifts to life, helping children develop inner resources that can be drawn upon throughout their lives.

“The thing I appreciate most about Bookworm(besides their excellent staff and excellent responsiveness) is that we can almost customize our bookfair to suit the needs of our students, teachers and parents.” Jeanne Rucks, Wolftrap ES, Vienna VA

“Staff, parents, and students were all impressed and in awe of the quality and selection of books on offer. There was an excitement and buzz about the school all week. Children running to me with checks, reporting back to me that they had already finished the book they bought the day before, and often parents popping in more than once to purchase…. the POS system was a breeze. I trained different volunteers every two hours, each day, and it was very manageable to everyone.” Kristin Teeters, Librarian, British School of Washington
