Create a team

Find volunteers willing to help you achieve your Book Fair goals. Ask parents and school staff to lend a hand as part of your team. After all, many hands make light work. We recommend you start gathering your team together three to four weeks before your Book Fair.

  • Put up recruitment posters at the school entrance
  • Ask for helpers via the newsletter and website
  • Place a notice in the staff room
  • Create a list of jobs that you need help with
  • Be specific about what is needed from volunteers, and when

Whether it’s your fellow teachers, the PTA, or simply mums, dads and guardians, helping out at a Book Fair is a great experience for all involved.

To make finding a team as easy as possible for you, we’ve created posters, letters and certificates to help you recruit and reward your team.
