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.

Blue Baboon Books offers two types of book fairs:

  • Mobile bookstore: These work best for one-day sales, such as family engagement events, STEM nights, or Donuts with Dads. We bring our mobile bookstore to your school, and your families can shop from inside the store.
  • In-School Book Fairs: These are run much like traditional book fairs, inside the library or other high-traffic areas. We provide the shelving, tables. Again, we handle everything: setup, sales, and teardown.
  • In-store book fair: Schedule a special day or night at Blue Baboon Books for your school! We’ll provide cookies and beverages, plan a special activity or craft, and your school will get rewards for all sales made during your in-store book fair!

Both fairs are low-maintenance for you. Let Blue Baboon Books take care of everything else, and your organization will reap the rewards:
