Finally, a Book Fair Reimagined
Just for Librarians

There just aren't many fundraising options for libraries that need books and resources. A book fair is a great community event; however, it can be overwhelming with little in return. At Love My Library we considered all the benefits of a book fair and created a program that can serve as an alternative.
How you might ask?

Why are Love My Library Book Fairs different from traditional online Book Fairs?

Instead of selling books to students, Love My Library's reimagined book fairs raise money using a state-of-the-art donation platform that reaches friends and family members and asks them to support students they know. Those donations are used by students to buy books on their customized bookshelf.
The average school book fair raises a little over $4,000. Love My Library Book Fairs and Read-A-Thon average over $11,000 per event. Our digital platform drives more donations and encourages participation from a broader network.
100% of the funds raised stay within the school community!
Librarians keep 50% of the money raised to spend as they wish. We provide all the tools, marketing materials and shipping at NO COST. Your readers keep 50% of the money raised to spend on books and other prizes.
Love My Library Book Fairs have taken years of book fair knowledge and made the EASIEST, MOST PROFITABLE, and LEAST TIME-CONSUMING literacy-based fundraiser on the market all while making sure student have access to latest and greatest in books.
Love My Library's reimagined book fair is the future of School Book Fairs.

Pick from a pre-curated selection of Best Selling Books

The Number 1 complaint we hear about traditional school book fairs is that there simply are not enough titles available to the students.
Your fair basically offers what the book fair company wants you to sell.
Love My Library reimagined book fair does two things for your students.
Your students choose from a pre-curated selection of the hottest selling books available.
Your students don't purchase books with their own money. They use credits they earn by promoting your Library Fundraiser.

No Cash or Inventory to Handle

The Number 2 complaint we hear about traditional school book fairs is the need to handle all the transactions that take place AND managing inventory. The best-selling books might sell out quickly which causes lower sales. And the Inventory is restricted to items shipped to your school.
Love My Library's reimagined book fair eliminates all in-person transactions, does all the record keeping for you, and eliminates the need to manage inventory.
We use the tried and proven Read-A-Thon donation platform to allow families and friends anywhere in the world to help your students get all the books they want while helping your library raise the money it needs. All transactions are online and recorded in real time.
Students search our database of pre-curated titles and build their own personal book shelf filled with the exact books they want. With no physical store there's no limitations on inventory and the students can choose from a much wider selection.

Highest Profits Anywhere

The Number 3 complaint we hear about traditional school book fairs is their profit structure.
Small schools and inner city schools with lower sales volumes are penalized and earn much smaller profits. In many cases the national book fair companies eliminate their cash profit option.
Love My Library's reimagined book fair offers the same high profit structure no matter how many students you have or how many dollars are raised.
Your library and students will retain 100% of the donations as profit.
And ALL SCHOOLS get the same great deal!

Read-a-thon's Love My Library division is a game changer for Media Specialists and Librarians:

"16 years of Book Fairs, Covid-19 left me no choice but to look for alternatives for fundraising. After reading about Read-A-Thon, I thought it was too good to be true, but I had to do something, so I gave it a shot. I so glad I did! The results were astronomical! I'm hooked. Easiest fundraiser ever!! Not only were the students excited about participating, but my Principal was a huge cheerleader! I'm pretty sure that both of our eyes popped out when we saw the end results. Thank you, Read-A-Thon for having such an easy way to encourage readers as well as raise funds for books."
