Parents, Staff, Faculty and Students,

The Spring Book Fair was a huge success. Your purchases earned approximately $950 for library books. I hope you enjoy the books you purchased as much as our students will enjoy the new books we purchase with the book fair proceeds. We are also especially thankful for the many books that were purchased for the Library Wish List and the Birthday Book Program. Our children will enjoy many new books for years to come, due to your generosity.

Many thanks are offered to our wonderful volunteers! These parents helped the students with book selection, estimating the cost of purchases with tax, counting money and making change. A special “thank you” goes to the following volunteers: Laurie A., Wendy G., Amy F., Jennifer P., Ann H., Kim A., Hilary G., Lisa M., and Alexa C.

Special events, like the book fair, could not happen without Villa’s Facilities Department personnel. We truly appreciate the “behind-the-scenes” efforts, putting up banners, setting up tables, helping load and unload books.

The staff and management at Secret Garden Bookstore were extremely supportive and knowledgeable. The book selection was perfect for Villa’s clientele. It is always a pleasure partnering with an independent book store for this event. When you are in Ballard, stop in their store and enjoy the incredible selection and customer service!

Again, many thanks to all the Villa families, friends, staff and faculty who contributed to the success of the Spring Book Fair!
