Books Inc. Book Fairs

Books Inc. offers large-scale, on-campus book fairs This includes set up, registers, and staffing as needed or for special events.
The sales expectations and donation scale are:
Our fairs vary in sales from $10,000 - $50,000 net of tax.
  • During the Fall, we ask that the school expect at least $17,000-20,000 in sales.
  • During the Spring, we ask that the school expect at least $10,000 in sales.
Donations are determined by sales, on a sliding scale:
  • All sales of less than $15,000 net of tax = 15% donation
  • Sales of $16,000-16,999.99 net of tax = 16% donation
  • Sales of $17,000-17,999.99 net of tax = 17% donation
  • Sales of $18,000-18,999.99 net of tax = 18% donation
  • Sales of $19,000-19,999.99 net of tax = 19% donation
  • All sales of greater than $20,000 net of tax = 20% 
Other Services Offered:
  • Books Inc. can arrange author visits to the school in conjunction with the school book fair. However, order forms provided by Books Inc. must be used diligently by the community, to ensure day-of sales for the visiting author.
  • Books Inc. can provide order forms and handle all sales for said order forms, for summer reading or required reading lists. 
  • Shopping Nights / In-Store Book Fairs: If the Books Inc. book fair program is unrealistic for your community, shopping nights or in-store book fairs are a great, low-cost alternative. Store managers schedule these events, and store buyers handle all special requests. The same donation scale is used for shopping nights as for book fairs.
