Students entering C.H. Campbell Elementary School’s library to shop at the Scholastic book fair were transported back to the Wild West the week of on Nov. 13.

With the theme ‘Wild West - Saddle up and Read,’ the library was transformed into a town from the Wild West, complete with a general store, livery and town bank. A barn was also featured, along with wanted posters of the schools’ faculty and staff.

C.H. Campbell Elementary School librarian/media specialist Patti Hockensmith said the decorating was a group effort of many PTO mothers.

The students attended the book fair during their scheduled library times, browsing through a variety of books, including creative fun, entertainment, science, reference, nonfiction, bestsellers and sports books. Students could also purchase bookmarks, pencils, novelty erasers, journals, pens, stickers, posters and more.

Parents and grandparents were invited to the book fair to help the students shop. The book fair also offered adult best-sellers for the parents and grandparents who attended the fair.

Students could also purchase books for their teacher’s classroom through the Buy a Teacher a Book program.

Members of the school’s PTO worked the checkout during the fair and were also available to help the children pick out books.

Proceeds from the book fair are used to buy books for the school’s library.
