Book Fair


Dating back to the 1960’s The Potomac School Book Fair is one of our oldest and most treasured traditions.

The tradition and goals of our Book Fair remain the same: Grow our love of reading – Enjoy our community – Support our libraries.

The Book Fair logo represents these goals, embraces the entire Potomac community and supports the ongoing importance we place on books and reading.

This tradition continues to grow because:

  • We all participate. Whether donating, sorting, selling during book fair week, or purchasing books – there is something for everyone.
  • We catch up with old friends and meet new Potomac families. This is one tradition where families from all divisions come together and roll up their sleeves to ensure a successful and fun event.
  • Everyone loves a good treasure hunt. With 20,000+ gently used books it really is fun to browse through great books – find a few you were looking for and a few that found you!
