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. All your school needs to do is clear a spot in your parking lot for the Blue Baboon Books mobile store.

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

Total Amount of Sales Blue Baboon Bucks* Cash
$1500 or less 20% 10%
$1501 to $2500 25% 12%
$2501-$3500 30% 15%
$3501-$4999 35% 17%
$5000 or higher 40% 20%

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, Blue Baboon Books is offering 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 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.

Schools can also opt to do a catalog fair to supplement their mobile fair. Blue Baboon Books will give you catalogs to send home with students a week or two prior to the mobile fair. Families can order from those, and those sales will count toward the school’s total rewards.
