Ideas for Holiday Reading and Gifts

I hope you all had a chance to make it over to Annie Bloom's to support our FOESL Book Fair. Thanks to all who helped out to make it possible.  Kudos, especially, to Jana, Betty and Dawn who really put an extraordinary amount of energy into the success of the fair.

Here are some recent recommendation for books-The New York Times Best Illustrated Books 2015, the Kirkus list, and a few of my favorites.  I will be sharing more lists in the early part of December.

Happy Holidays, Happy Reading! It's Book Fair Time!

With fall’s cooler weather arriving that can mean only one thing…the FOESL Book Fair!! This year’s Book Fair will be held November 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th at Annie Bloom’s Bookstore in Multnomah Village. Like last year, there will be a fabulous selection of books, lots of great shopping, raffles to win a stuffed Aardvark and much, much more! Annie Bloom’s Books
Our amazing OES Librarians have curated a must have Hot Picks list if you need book recommendations and pre-order them before October 23 to guarantee your books will be waiting for you at Annie Blooms. Find them here. Book Fair Homepage                
The Book Fair helps support OES readers through raising funds to help with our Summer Reading T-shirts, Oregon Battle of the Books class sets for both 4th and 5th grades and to bring authors and illustrators to our campus.  Thank you to all our hard-working volunteers!
