Turtle Lake Elementary Book Fair

Turtle Lake Elementary

Welcome to the Turtle Lake Elementary Virtual Book Fair! Shop for fabulous books and support your school at the same time—a portion of all book fair purchases will go back to Turtle Lake.

The Turtle Lake Book Fair runs November 9th-20th.

Located in Shoreview, Minnesota, Turtle Lake Elementary School serves just over 1,000 students ranging from grades 1-5. Students enrolled at Turtle Lake benefit from a comprehensive plan created to ensure that each child will be prepared for post-secondary success. A love of reading and a passion for learning is something the staff wants to instill in all students. Not only does Turtle Lake provide rigorous academic learning opportunities, but the school also helps students understand their role in being a positive, contributing member of their community. Book festival proceeds directly benefit Turtle Lake’s library collection. 


How it Works

  • Browse the wishlists and recommendation lists from Turtle Lake teachers or shop any other books available through Red Balloon's website.
  • At checkout, use coupon code TLFALL20—that way your purchase will be counted as part of the book fair and support your school.
  • If you'd prefer to shop in person or by phone, that's fine, too! Just stop by the store or call during business hours to place an order—and make sure to mention that you'd like your puchase to count towards the book fair! 

For online and phone orders, you’ll have a few delivery options to choose from:
