Gently Used Book Donations

Donate your gently used books to Northeast! We are collecting books for kindergarten – 5th graders, that are in good condition, to be shared during our Spring Book Fair. This will allow us to make sure every Northeast student receives a book during the Book Fair. You can drop off your books in boxes located at the front of the school building beginning Monday, March 13th. Please ONLY drop off books for grades K-5 (no adult and no toddler or baby books). Email [email protected] with questions.


Setup an eWallet for your student so they can shop “cashless” at our Spring Book Fair! Families can put funds into a student’s electronic wallet so that they can shop for books at the fair without having to bring money to school and you have the ability to track their purchases! Instructions for setting up your child’s eWallet can be found on our Book Fair home page.

**If you are interested in donating books from the Fair to your child’s classroom, please ask your teacher for a link to their teacher e-Wallet to make a contribution.


Northeast has also set up a “Book Buddies” e-Wallet to give all our students an opportunity to buy something at the fair! Please use this link if you would like to make a donation. $1-$10 can buy a new book or a special gift for a Northeast child who might not otherwise be able to do so.
