Go cashless with Book Fair Gift Vouchers

Book Fair Gift Vouchers are the simple, secure way to ensure your child gets the books they want when the Book Fair arrives and are perfect if you can’t make it to the Book Fair or if your school doesn’t accept cash!

Gift Vouchers

Your child’s school will tell you how they intend to run their Book Fair and what payment options are available to you. Please contact the Book Fair Organiser if you are unsure.

If your child’s school is using the online payment system you can pay for your child’s books up until 4pm on the day before the Book Fair is collected.

Your child may come home with a Wish List. These are designed to allow your child to make a note of the books they would like to purchase from the bookcases if you are unable to attend the Book Fair in person. You can then pay for these books using our online payment system.

The Wish List is not an order form and must be returned to your child’s school so the school can distribute the chosen books.

Research shows that children are five times more likely to finish a book if they have chosen it themselves, making a Scholastic Book Fair the perfect opportunity to get your child excited about reading!
