Book Fairs


Red Balloon Book Fairs: In Person, Online and More!  

Red Balloon is here to help you share the love of reading with your school community! With a Red Balloon Book Fair, you can earn money for your school while working with our experienced booksellers and supporting a locally owned bookshop.

We can help you set up a book fair at your school, in our store, online, or whatever combination of these formats works best for your needs.

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? No problem! If you want, and we can get it, we'll bring it.  For online and hybrid fairs, our website is home to pages of Red Balloon bookseller recommendations and provides searchable access to millions of titles as well as the ability for teachers to add shoppable wish 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.

Pick up, Shipping, and Pick Up at School 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 and shipping services can work best for your community and your book fair format.
