Book Fairs

Giving Back to the Community 

Every fall since 1986, we’ve hosted book fairs to raise money for our local schools. In recent past years we have given over $16,000 each year.  At these events you can get your holiday shopping done, meet other parents and friends, and maybe have a glass of wine and some appetizers. Best of all, we’ll donate 20% of our sales directly to the schools. The more you buy, the more we give.  For more information about book fairs, please call us at 206-232-6920 or email eventsandmarketing@mercerislandbooks.com.

2021 Update:  This year's bookfairs will be a bit more sedate than previous years, we want to support our schools and remain safe. There will be no food and drink, and we ask customers to be mindful of social distancing.  Only in store sales on the day of the bookfair go towards each school. Be sure to mention that you are shopping for your school.
