The annual Nueva Book Fair is an unabashed celebration of ink on paper and our community’s deep love of books and the nourishment they provide. The book selection is highly curated to appeal to our community of immensely curious learners. Picture books that inform and delight, middle grade tales of intrigue and misadventure, mind-expanding science fiction and science fact, Nueva-worthy math books, and new and noteworthy literature for all ages.

We invite you to visit us at both campuses to get your holiday shopping done early while supporting our beloved Hillsborough library and the Upper School’s Writing & Research Center (WRC). Nueva Libraries receive 25% of Book Fair sales.

Short on time? Don’t hesitate to contact the Nueva Book Fair co-chairs for book selection assistance, or just stop by the Fair during open hours. We’re happy to help!

Pre-fund an account

Add funds to a Book Fair account for your student(s), so they have money to spend at the Fair. No more lost cash! It’s also a great way to show appreciation to a teacher or friend.

Join the team

The Book Fair is a large event, lasting two weeks, and spread over two campuses. It runs on volunteer parent power (and caffeine!). Volunteer as little as a few hours on one day.

Plan your visit

The two-week Book Fair has a full slate of activities, including author visits and student activities. Parents are invited to take part in special lunches and Sip & Shop coffees. We hope you’ll join us!
