What is included with a PBC Book Fair?
  • Full Set Up & Take Down Service
    You provide the tables, we provide the rest. Includes linens, category signage, displays for books and sidelines, table talkers, and most importantly all the labor. Most PBC fairs are fully set up in under 2 hours, and taken down in just 1 hour.
  • A Great Selection of Books
    All publishers are represented in our diverse selection of age appropriate, trending themes, new books & more! Plus, most books are discounted off of the retail price.
  • Marketing Materials
    Distributable flyers, posters, book trailers, and fun standees to draw in students during the fair.
  • Our Customer Service Promise
    We want you to have the best possible fair & we work hard to provide you with all the tools and materials you need. We are always here to answer your questions and we are excited to provide high quality books at great prices for your students. We know that you’ll be pleased with the price, service, selection, and ease of operations that a PBC Book Fair provides.
Why should I pick PBC for my next fair?

If you are ready for a different kind of fair, one that emphasizes service and selection, PBC might be a good fit for you.

Our fairs feature a wide variety of books at prices that are discounted to the students, and your school earns a no-strings-attached 20% back. Plus, we handle the set-up and take-down for you.

Are my dates available?

Ask Us! Popular weeks (like parent-teacher conference week) go fast, and the only way to know if the week you want is available is to ask.

Do you have cases?

No, we do not. PBC Fairs are table-top fairs, but we are very flexible and want to work with you to maximize your available space.
If you don't have enough tables available for us to use, ask us about borrowing some PBC tables for your fair. (It's free!)

How much does my school/PTO/library earn?

You will receive 20% of your net sales. A Book Fair Sales Summary and Credit Certificate will be issued 2-4 weeks after the close of your fair.

Is the 20% back cash or credit?

You can choose how to receive and spend your earnings.

Option 1: Warehouse Credit—Our warehouse has thousands of books in stock that are 50% off retail prices every day. You can stretch your earnings as far as possible with this option. If you see books on the fair that you would like, you can fill out our How I Want to Spend My Credit Form and we will pack and send them to you. You can come shop the warehouse any time with your credit, it's open to the public all the time.

Option 2: Credit on File—Keep your settlement on file with us as credit towards future orders. Use it to order books that are not in stock at our warehouse at great discounted prices.

Option 3: Cash Back—We can issue your school or organization a check for the amount of credit.

All credit expires 6 months after date of issue. Option 3-Cash Back is only available for 4 weeks from the date of issue.
Do you offer Spring BOGO fairs or other incentives if we host 2 fairs in one school year?

No, we do not. With a few exceptions, almost every title on a PBC fair is discounted from the retail price. We want every child to come to the fair and be able to walk away with a book, no matter what time of year it is.

I want a specific book or series. Will it be at the fair?

It can't hurt to ask! We do not guarantee any titles at our fairs. What we do promise is to strive to bring you a great selection that will have something for you.

If you have special requests, like a summer required reading list, tell us EARLY! We may be able to provide you with pre-order forms for specific titles. Kids use the order forms and pay at the fair and after your fair is complete and we collect all prepaid order forms and ship the books to your school for distribution. This process can take 2-3 weeks for delivery of books.
