Easy to Set Up, Easy to Run

There’s a new kind of book fair – simple and streamlined.


You’re busy.

That’s why we’ve made book fairs fast to set up and simple to run. There’s always time for a book fair!


Book Fairs Made Easy

You don’t need to devote an entire afternoon with a roomful of volunteers to set up a Follett Book Fair.

It takes two volunteers an average of 30 minutes to set up, thanks to our pre-merchandised cases. All you have to do is position the cases, open them, flip up the case headers and you’re set. Tabletop displays are also pre-merchandised. Set up the cash register and you’re ready to go.

We're not kidding. It's really that simple. ›

Tools for Success

There are no secrets here. We’ll share everything you
need to know about hosting a successful book fair.

Before your fair, we’ll invite you to our exclusive online webinars that you can watch at any time. You’ll hear tips and tricks and get a firsthand look so you’ll know what to expect.

You’ll also find a wealth of resources and support materials on Follett Book Fairs Insider.

Straightforward Wrap Up

When it’s time to close your fair, you simply leave the merchandise on the shelves, close the cases and move them to the pick-up location. Select your rewards and book your next fair!

Low-Touch Book Fairs

We provide a smaller footprint intended to create a low-touch, space-conscious on-site book fair. This mobile offering is designed to fit in various indoor (or outdoor) space. Because of their portability, you can even roll the carts into classrooms to reduce traffic.

And, every low-touch fair has an online companion giving friends and family the ability to shop our expanded book selection to further support their student’s reading goals. Our on-site fairs have resources and safety suggestions to support social distancing to keep your visitors and staff safe!
