Bryant Book Fair: Coming Soon!

University Book Store icon

Mark your calendars for the annual Bryant Book Fair: December 12-16. With our partners at the fabulous University Book Store, we turn the Bryant Library into a book store, where families can find great books and gifts. Making your options even more convenient, you may visit any U Book Store and give them our code BES (Bryant Elementary School) for us to get credit. Bryant Library earns 25% of every sale. This works out to almost half our budget for the year.

Ways to access our book fair:

December 12-16 at Bryant Library
December 12-18 at any UBS location
December 10-18 online @
