All the Books
Tired of seeing the same paperbacks every year? Need books in Spanish or on a special topic? Red Balloon can order almost anything for your book fair. Send us your list, let our expert booksellers fill the fair with some of the most popular titles from the store, or do a combination of both.

Work with a Person
Our children’s book experts know their stuff and love what they do. If you’re not sure what books you need for your fair, you can count on us to make great suggestions and selections. 

Money Back for Your School
A successful book fair benefits both your school and our store. We’ll give a percentage of book fair profits back to your school once the fair is over. The more books that find good homes, the more money you’ll raise for your school.

Credit Card Enabled
If you’d like the flexibility to accept credit cards at your book fair, we are able to provide this service via the Square app.

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.

In-Store Option
If you want to make it really easy on yourself and your volunteers, you can host your book fair at Red Balloon. Your families can shop the entire store and take advantage of our knowledgeable booksellers and complimentary gift wrapping.  Your school will still receive a percentage of sales back, and you can bring refreshments, entertainment, or anything else you’d like to add to make the event a success!
