Story Cupboard Book Fairs
Story Cupboard Book Fairs. At the heart of The Story Cupboard is a love of books and learning. We are committed to getting quality literature into the hands of kids and families, contributing to a world lifetime readers.

Why do we do Book Fair?
***To get books into students' hands!
* To promote reading in a fun manner.
* The Library receives a small portion of each order which I then use to buy more books!
(Dilworth’s enrollment is down and, with that, the Library has lost funding this year!!!)
***To help out a local, family-owned business during this COVID time!!!
With your help promoting the Book Fair, everyone will benefit! Thank you for your support!

Congratulations to Dilworth’s BATTLE of the BOOKS Team for this year!
