Looking for Volunteers
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming annual IB Used Book Buy Back and Sale. Hours are May 18 from 11:00am – 1:00pm and May 21 from 11:00am – 4:00pm in the IB Office. Please contact Kathryn Stieneker at email@example.com or Pam Paulien at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Changes to this year’s IB New Book Order
The Friends of IB Scholars Foundation offers an annual used book buy back and sale, as well as a group purchase of new books. These activities are not designed for profit, but rather solely for the purpose of raising funds to cover book expenses for our F/RL students-of-need. This year, rather than marking up the cost of the books, a $15 service fee will be required. Book prices will be exactly as charged by our local supplier, Tattered Cover, with no markup. The service is both convenient and supportive of a good cause. New books will be delivered directly to students in the first days of school. Look for the New Book Order form to come out soon. We hope that you will participate!
Attention IB F/RL Students – Changes to the IB Book Sale procedure!
If you are an IB junior or senior F/RL student, your textbooks will be loaned to you in class directly from your teachers. You will then return your textbooks to your teachers at the end of the school year. You do not have to attend the IB used book sale.
