CCFC's Guide to Commercial-Free Book Fairs

Hold a book fair at your school without corporate marketing or media tie ins! Are you tired of all the items for sale at your book fair that aren't books--such as toys, video games, posters, and fashion accessories? Do you think that school book fairs should promote reading without promoting TV shows and movies?

A Commercial-Free Book Fair is the perfect way to:

  •  Raise funds for a school in a manner consistent with its educational mission.
  •  Promote literacy.
  •  Provide an alternative for children who are already inundated with marketing for media-linked products.
  •  Enrich classroom and library book collections.
  •  Provide books to students-including the opportunity to purchase books for_those who may not have the funds to buy them.
  •  Support a local business.

CCFC's Guide to Commercial-Free Book Fairs includes a directory of independent booksellers who support book fairs.  (Booksellers who would like to be included in future editions of the guide should email ccfc(at)
