Hello, and welcome to the Pebble Preschool Online Bookfair!
Every fall since 1986, we’ve hosted book fairs to raise money for our local schools. 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. In 2016 we donated over $17,000. This book fair is different!
Pebble Preschool is donating all proceeds from their bookfair to Mercer Island Youth and Family Services. We are so excited to turn our attention to our community during this time and work with Pebble Preschool to support Mercer Island Youth and Family Services.
Here is how to participate in the bookfair:
- Make an account on our site so that you're ready to shop for books. And/or...
- Make a personal shopping appointment for June 10 to shop gift items, toys, jewelry, cards, games, and other fun items by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can make personal shopping appointments that can be done over FaceTime, the phone, or in person for a half hour between 8:00am - 4:30pm. All in-person shopping must be limited to groups of four people for up to thirty minutes per group. This is to make sure we are not over capacity in the store.
- Shop, shop, shop. Please pay attention to what says "On Our Shelves Now." When you purchase items that are currently in the store, we are able to donate more to MIYFS. When we have to order books (says, "Usually Available in 1-5 Days"), the shipping costs cut into the total pool of money we are able to donate from. We are happy to order books, but we want to inform you on the affect it has on the fundraiser
- When you check out, be sure to do these 3 things so that your order is counted towards the donation total:
- Put Pebble Preschool in your order notes.
- Choose “pay online” – using Pay Pal
- Choose pick-up in the store so that you can participate in curbside pick-up. If you are unable to come to the store due to health issues, we are more than happy to delivery on Mercer Island. If you need an item shipped, we ask that you pay for shipping by selecting "Priority Mail". We do not typically do shipping during bookfair, but understand that this is an unprecedented time so ask that you pay for the shipping cost.
- EMAILS WILL NOT BE A WAY WE ARE PROCESSING BOOK FAIR PURCHASES.
Here you will find recommendations for books you and your family might enjoy as summer begins! If there are any books you would like to order that you do not see on a list, you can search for it in the search bar on the right side of the page.
Please be aware that if you are looking for any jewerly, toys, cards, or other gift items, they can only be purchased through our Personal Shopping Appointments and are unavailable on our website.
We welcome you to call us if you have any questions.
