Helping Schools Succeed

Mrs. Nelson's family of businesses combines personalized book fairs, book ordering and bindery services to provide fundraising opportunities, extend the life of books, and promote the love of reading and learning.

Book Fairs Book Fair

Book fairs are an awesome way to raise money for your school! Students, parents and teachers can select from a multitude of books in a store-like setting, right on your own campus and your school will earn a percentage of the sales. Not only does your school earn money, but you’re encouraging a love for reading among your students.
