Saint Andrew’s Spring Book Fair with the Newtown Bookshop!

Saint Andrew’s Spring Book Fair with the Newtown Bookshop!

For our Spring Book Fair, Saint Andrew School is very happy and proud to again support a wonderful local business, the Newtown Bookshop!

Our Spring Virtual Book Fair with the Newtown Bookshop will be for 2 weeks from Sunday, May 22nd to Sunday, June 5th, 2002!

Families will be able to shop virtually at their convenience to purchase Saint Andrew Summer Reading books, gifts for graduates, Father’s Day gifts, birthday gifts, and any other items for your reading pleasure!  You may shop in person at the store (Please remember to mention Saint Andrew’s Book Fair!), pick your orders up at the store, or have them shipped directly to your home or recipient (shipping fees apply).  A percentage of our orders will go back to support the Saint Andrew’s School Library!
