RISD Council of PTAs Used Book Fair
The RISD Council of PTAs Used Book Fair began in 1982 and provides funds for the RISD Council of PTAs. Proceeds from the bookfair support scholarships for graduating seniors and continuing education for teachers, in addition to supporting our local PTAs.
used book fair training
We are in the process of uploading brand new UBF training, in the form of a 3 min intro video that demonstrates how to properly sort and box your books, as well as a totally revamped training slide presentation that drills down into the nitty-gritty. And as always, you can reach out to Ronson Page with any questions. Once each part is available, the links below will be live.
(The slide presentation is in three parts, due to upload size restrictions. We call this a workaround, folks.)
FOrms for participating schools
Each year, schools that are collecting books for the Used Book Fair will need a few forms, to print & fill out & return to us at the Used Book Fair. As the forms become available, we will upload each one here:
