Book Fairs & Events

Blue Baboon Books loves book fairs, and you’ll love Blue Baboon Books’ book fairs!

Planning an event with Blue Baboon Book Fairs is super low-maintenance. No volunteer coordination. No setup. No minimum sales.

Schools or nonprofits can choose to have the Blue Baboon Books mobile bookstore come out to you, or you can have an in-store book fair. In-store book fairs can be set up for one, two, or three days. Blue Baboon will also provide refreshments for your families!

All your school needs to do is clear a spot in your parking lot for the Blue Baboon Books mobile store or set a date for an in-store book fair.

Let Blue Baboon Books take care of everything else, and your organization will reap the rewards:

Earn more: Earn an extra 2% on your rewards when you schedule an additional book fair or event with Blue Baboon Books during the same or next semester! PLUS, mobile book fairs can earn an extra 1% in EcoRewards for schools that allow the mobile store to connect to one of the school’s electrical outlets, rather than running the gas-powered generator.

To promote your book fair, you will be given posters to hang in hallways and on doors. You will also be given a custom flyer to send home with your students to let their families know that Blue Baboon Books will be at the school.
