Pioneer's Avid Reader Book Festival

The Pioneer PTA is excited to announce a new partnership with our local Davis bookstore, The Avid Reader, to promote literacy and reading!

What: A book festival held during part of November Teacher Conference Week

When: Tuesday, November 13th to Friday, November 16th

11:30am – 3:30pm

Where: Pioneer School Library

Prior to the festival, students will receive a book order form listing a majority of books featured at the festival. Students will then have opportunities to see copies of the books on display at the library. Book Festival Order Forms will be distributed by November 5. Books orders placed will be delivered to students by their teachers after the Thanksgiving Break.

Q: How is this similar to the book fairs we are used to?

A: Students will still be able to browse books during conference week at the library and order books to expand their libraries at home; and the school librarian as well as teachers will still receive new books to expand their libraries courtesy of the Pioneer PTA.

Q: How is this Avid Reader Book Festival different from the Scholastics Book Fair?

A: There are some important differences to note:

  • Books will be purchased through order forms, rather than at the library. 


  • Purchases will support The Avid Reader, a locally owned bookstore in Davis.    


  • A much wider selection of books will be available.


  • The Library will receive at least 150 new books to add to its collection.


  • The Library will remain open for normal book check out during the Festival.


  • There will NOT be posters, trinkets, chotskies, toys…for purchase. ONLY books!


  • Book Festival order forms with check or cash payment must be submitted to the Library by Friday, November 16.
