The Dobbins PTO Elementary Book Fair was originally scheduled Jan. 27-31, but inclement weather caused multiple school closings that threatened to harm the success of the fair.

Fortunately, Scholastic – which provided the books to be sold – was accommodating to Dobbins and the event was extended.

“We called Scholastic and explained the situation,” said book fair coordinator Kristin Masucci. “They let us keep the books for an extra week. It’s a huge fundraiser for the library.”

With the fair extended to Feb. 7, the event was a success with more than $5,000 in sales that will go toward purchasing books for the school’s library.

The school’s 217 students in grades kindergarten through fourth participated in the fair, with their parents being invited for family night Feb. 6 from 2:30-7 p.m. to help their children pick out their books.

School librarian and library monitor Lois Dunnavant said the event was a success due to the enthusiasm of the students.

“They look forward to it and being able to purchase their own books,” she said.
