Free Resources - Everything you need for your Book Fair

This term we have implemented plans to help you run your Fair as safely as possible, and that includes not sending extra paper and planning kits into schools. Instead, all of the Book Fair promotional materials will be digital. You can find them all below.

For a quick how-to on running a Book Fair, download our Organiser’s Guide or visit the Organiser’s Guide webpage.
To learn more about the measures we’ve put in place to ensure you can run your Book Fair safely this term, visit our FAQs page.
