Welcome to virtual side of the Whittier Elementary book fair, presented by Phinney Books on Bookshop.org!
Phinney Books will be hosting an in-person book fair at Whittier Elementary on December 1, but you can also make purchases through this page on Bookshop, any time between now and December 15, and the purchases will count toward the Whittier fair credit as well: the Whittier library will receive a credit of 25% of all sales, both in-person and online, to spend on books for the school. Here's how the fair will work:
- You can browse our lists below of popular and recommended books in various categories, but any purchase you make on the site will be included in the school credit. Use the search box at the top of the page to access almost any book in print. As long as you see "Whittier Elementary" listed as your affiliate in the upper left corner of the page, you'll know that your purchases, no matter where you find them in the store, will be credited to the school.
- All purchases on Bookshop will be shipped from the wholesaler's warehouse directly to the purchasers (or to gift recipients). There is not an option for in-store pickup. Please allow 7-10 days for shipping for books in stock.
- There is a shipping charge for all purchases, but Bookshop also discounts most books between 8-10%, which covers much of the shipping cost.
- If you purchase books to donate to the school, please have them shipped to you and then bring them to the school.
- You can also purchase books at Phinney Books during the book fair and have the books count toward the school credit. Just let us know at checkout that you want them applied to the Whittier fair, and we'll add them to the school total.
- Gift wrapping is now available on Bookshop, for a small fee, and you can have books shipped directly to the recipients.
- If you want to have books shipped to multiple locations, please place separate orders for each location.
- If while browsing through the site, you find another store listed as your affiliate in the upper left corner, here's how you can return to having Whittier listed there instead: type "Whittier" in the search box, click on "Show results for SHOPS," and then click on View Shop under Whittier Elementary. That will make Whittier your affiliate again, so your purchases will be credited to the school.
- For any customer service questions about your orders, please contact Bookshop via the "Support/Help" link at the bottom of every page.
