How does a Love My Libary Book Fair Work at a School?

There are two ways to conduct a Love My Library Book Fair. If students have access to a personal device such as a Chromebook, a teacher can guide them to a screen where they select their teacher and then they are able to create an account and pick books to put on their bookshelf that they want. If students do not have access to a personal device such as a Chromebook, they can be taken to the library or a computer lab, sit down at a computer, and the screen will already have up the page where they select their teacher. They can then create their account and fill their bookshelf with books they want. Remember, every reader who promotes the Love My Library book fair by sending 10 emails and posting on social media through the easy to use Love My Library platform will get a FREE BOOK! Also, those who send 10 texts will qualify for a nationwide drawing for a trip to Disney!

Love My Library is a book fair reimagined. It combines literacy with raising funds to purchse books. Students gather support and the more support they gather, the more book bucks they earn to get their own books. Meanwhile, the library is able to raise Depot Dollars to spend on books or is able to cash out 25% of the depot dollars earned for a check!

Love My Library is the number one pick because it's so easy. Readers use the latest technology to let supporters know they are wanting books.. Supporters donate money to support the library and the reader they know. Students earn books and a while the library raises funds to spend on books, or to get funds at the end of the event.

1. Sign Up

The first step is signing up and choosing to do a book fair.

computer sign up

The person in charge of the book fair will be the one to do this. Normally it is the librarian.

They'll simply go to lovemylibrary.com and create an account. Then from their dashboard they can choose to do a book fair once they have determined the time frame they want to hold it. Then they'll need to enter the teachers so when students sign up, they'll be able to pick their teacher.

2. Reader Sign Up

Teachers will be scheduled to come into the library or computer lab. They'll have a page loaded on each computer that already has them as the teacher.

create your bookshelf

Alternatively they can give students a link that already has them as the teacher so readers can pull up the page on their own personal device such as a Chromebook.

The readers visit the page to enter in their information and pick out their books.

3. Build a Bookshelf

This is where the virtual book fair begins for readers. Students are able to go on the site, type in their name, and then build their bookshelf.
