Use Membership Toolkit's Wish Lists at Virtual Book Fairs

Teacher Wish Lists at Virtual Book Fairs

We are constantly hearing about our customers’ “out-of-the-box” ideas they use to support their schools and communities. Reed School Association (RSA) in Ladue, Missouri recently hosted a Virtual Scholastic Book Fair for their families and community.

Of course one drawback to having a virtual book fair is that you don’t have access to teacher wish lists and drop boxes for families to purchase books for their child’s classroom.

Laura Whelan, a member of the RSA Book Fair Committee, tells us about an idea they had to continue to help teachers build up their classroom libraries. “We created a form for teachers to add books they wanted from Scholastic, then we published it for parents to buy the book via our website (and then we ordered the book in a bulk order) and we created a code so they could claim the book via our website (and checkout without a charge) and then order it as part of they own Scholastic order.” What an impressive use of their Membership Toolkit website and an easy tweak to continue to support teachers.

RSA sold about 90 books from teachers wish lists this way which increases their fundraising totals from Scholastic AND stocks the classroom libraries! It’s a win-win! Way to go RSA!
