Support the Y, When You Buy: Scholastic Book Fair Begins 10/25

Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a good book! Now that children are primarily back in school, encouraging them to read books is a great way to stimulate their growing minds. The Berkeley Heights YMCA will be hosting a hybrid Scholastic Book Fair featuring a large assortment of books for children ages preschool through sixth grade. 


Support the Y, when you buy 

For every purchase from the Book Fair, Scholastic will give back 25% in rewards to the Berkeley Heights YMCA and will allow us to buy new books, games and activities for this school year.



The Book Fair will take place from Monday, October 25 to Friday, October 29 (see hours below).

Monday, 10/25 – 3:30–6:30 PM

Tips for encouraging children to read:

- Find books of special interest to them or take them to a library/bookstore and have them choose their own books.

- Provide special incentives for completing a book or even a chapter.

- Designate a special time during the day for family reading time where everyone reads together.
