The Villa community is invited to visit the Fall Book Fair, held in the Rainbow Theatre between October 21st and October 25th. The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity for students to be exposed to some new literature, to generate excitement for reading, and to raise funds for the Villa Library.

Fall Book Fair Thank You

Parents, Staff, Faculty and Students,

The Fall Book Fair, which we conducted in coordination with the University Book Store, was a huge success! Your purchases earned approximately $2000 for the purchase of books for the Villa Library.   We hope you enjoy the books you purchased as much as our students will enjoy the new books we purchase for the library with the book fair proceeds.   We are also especially thankful for the many books that were purchased for the library from our wish list. Our children will enjoy a variety of 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, counting money and making change. A special “thank you” goes to the following volunteers: Wendy Gibbons, Amy Fouke, Suzanne Moreau, Nina Stuyt, Ann Selberg, Staci Foster, Kelli Smith-Bailey, Jennifer Porter, and Michael Guadagno.

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

The staff and management at University Book Store were extremely supportive and knowledgeable and the book selection was perfect for Villa’s clientele. It is always a pleasure partnering with an independent bookstore for this event.  When you are in the U District, stop by their store on the Avenue, 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 Fall Book Fair!
