Fall Book Fair
September 23-27 8 am to 3:30 pm
Open late until 7 pm on Thursday, September 26th!
Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
- Set the example. Let children see you read.
- Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep
up with changing tastes and reading skills.
- Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
Two NEW shopping options!
Book Fair eWallet
eWallet is a safe and convenient digital payment option for your student to shop the Fair cash-free. Set up an account for each student (no family accounts). Last day to add funds is Thursday, September 26th. Credit cards are charged at the end of the fair. Any questions? Contact the library!

Librarians helping one another!
We are were able to raise $2,500 from our Fall 2017 Book Fair to help a previous Ida Freeman teacher, Serena Coles, and her new school!!! She recently moved to Houston and her new school, Lemm Elementary in the Klein ISD, was severely damaged by the hurricane. Lemm Elementary will be able to use the funds raised to purchase new books, classroom furniture, and decor.
Bushels for Books Program
Ida Freeman was selected to be a part of the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation & the Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers’ Bushel for Books program! Bushel for Books program seeks to provide accurate and current agriculture books in Oklahoma schools. Local farmers and co-ops have donated part of their wheat crops to help fund the donations in hopes that it will inspire future farmers.
Thank you for the books! It will be an excellent addition to our library for both teachers and students to learn more about agriculture!
Chief Ricks Retirement
Citizens Bank donated over $1,000 to the Ida Freeman Library in honor of the retirement of Police Chief Bob Ricks. They also donated a basket of Police themed books! Thank you Citizens bank for the donation! Thank you Chief Ricks for your service to Edmond and your time as a Rotary Reader at Ida Freeman!
