Students at Busselton Primary School have expressed their enthusiasm for a simpler Dymocks’ Book Fair, which was offered in response to the cancellation of the annual Scholastic event.

Coming out of COVID-19 restrictions, Dymocks saw the importance of providing a “more simple, streamlined version” of the fair to allow students the chance to still enjoy a much loved event. Dymocks Busselton director Beth Herbert said she was passionate about encouraging a love of books and reading in children.

“At the beginning of COVID-19, book fairs had to be cancelled because of restrictions so I came up with this idea as an alternative.”

“What I am especially pleased about in schools taking up my offer is that they are supporting a locally owned and operated business, a business that prides itself on its knowledge and expertise when it comes to children’s books.”

The fair saw Dymocks provide the school with more than 300 books for students to select and order from.

Library officer Joan Simpson said book fairs were important to students because they enabled them to find books to suit their own preferences.
