How can I help?
Bookwood is an event powered completely by parent volunteers. Without your help, Bookwood does not happen. Please CLICK HERE to volunteer your time. Sponsors are also needed to help offset the cost of this affordable, family fun event. We try to cover all of the costs of the event through tickets and family sponsorships so all proceeds go directly to the Story Center. Please click on the Tickets I Merchandise I Sponsorship tab for more info.
How do we dedicate books?
At Bookwood, titles carefully selected by our Elementary School Teachers will be on display to select and purchase with a credit card. Proceed to fill out a custom bookplate in your family, child, loved one or friends name to dedicate your books to the classrooms.
Can we take books home? Will there be books we can buy?
YES!!! This year, we will host a traditional Book Fair. Choose from countless titles to purchase, take home and enjoy with your family! You can also purchase books by our guest authors that can be signed, and of course go home with you! Please note this is a CASHLESS event! Credit cards only!
Can we buy Bookwood gear at the event?
We will have limited quantities of T-shirts, and Tote Bags available for purchase at the event.
