Mineral County High librarian Lois Dorschel was pleased with the turnout for the school’s book fair. The library received 50 percent of the funds made for the week.

This year’s fall Scholastic Book Fair brought many early Christmas shoppers, as the prices and selection proved to be a hit with parents and children.

“Thursday was our biggest day, as the buses brought kids over from the elementary schools, and then we had the upper grade students come over. Having one extended 12 hour day helps our profits to grow. We had a steady day and it couldn’t have been successful without all the wonderful volunteers coming to assist our shoppers,” said librarian Lois Dorschel.

Dorschel also shared that last year the fall sale averaged $2 per person in Mineral County, according to a population of 3,000. Of course not everyone in the county had shopped, but those that did were making numerous purchases, which was a huge support. All the funds that come in give 50 percent back to the school system’s library.
