Book Fairs


Red Balloon Book Fairs are Now Online!  

We are here to help you share the love of reading with your school community. Families can shop from anywhere and earn money for your school while working with our experienced booksellers and supporting a locally owned bookshop.

Current and Upcoming Book Fairs

Highland Park Middle School: May 23 - June 2

Benefits of Red Balloon Book Fairs:

All the Books!
Tired of seeing the same paperbacks every year? Need books in Spanish or on a special topic? Through our website, Red Balloon gives you access to millions of titles.  Your community can also shop from wish lists that you create as well as from any of our recommended lists. Here are some recommendations!

Work with a Person!
Our children’s book experts know their stuff and love what they do. Once you decide to do a book fair you will have your own personal bookseller to help you through the process.

Money Back for Your School
We’ll give a percentage of book fair profits back to your school in cash or store credit once the fair is over. The more books that find good homes, the more money you’ll raise for your school.

Support a Local Business
There’s only one Red Balloon Bookshop, and we’ve been matching kids and books since 1984. Choosing Red Balloon for your book fair keeps your purchase dollars in the community, and helps keep us around for next time.

Book Fair in a Box Preview
If your school is holding in person instruction, we’ll create a Book Fair in Box preview so you can share samples of books that your students can order from Red Balloon.

Pick up, Delivery and Shipping Service
We want to make it as easy as possible to connect your school community with great books.  We’re happy to talk with you about how our pick up, delivery and shipping services can work best for your community.
