R. Roger Rowe School annual book fair to run Oct. 5-9 in Rancho Santa Fe


The community is invited to the R. Roger Rowe School’s annual Book Fair, to be held from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 5-9 at the school, Room 204.

This year’s “Monster Book Fair,” based off the movie Monster’s Inc., will carry books from pre-K to adult.

The Book Fair is a great way to connect kids with books they want to read, instill a love of reading, and promote literacy. Parents and children will find a diverse selection of books to fill the home library, with award-winning books and titles from leading authors — all at fantastic prices.

Students will visit the Book Fair with their classes on Oct. 2 and will write a wish list of books they would like to buy the week of Oct. 5-9. Teachers also make wish lists for their classrooms for parents to purchase. Parents will place their child’s name on a dedication sticker inside books they donate to their child’s classroom.

“This is a great way to increase the classroom library,” said Stacey Halboth, the school librarian. “It allows students to be exposed to a variety of genres.”

Community members and parent volunteers are essential each year to making the Book Fair a success. Helpers are needed to work for two hours at the Book Fair working cash registers, organizing books, and helping students find what they need. Community volunteers can contact Stacey Halboth at 858-756-1141, ext. 201. Rancho Santa Fe parents can sign up through the parent volunteer link at or
