Chillicothe Middle School will host its annual Scholastic Book Fair Monday, Jan. 21 through Friday, Jan. 25 in the CMS library.

Each student will have at least two opportunities to visit the book fair with their language arts or reading classes.

In addition to regular school hours, the book fair will be open before school at 7:30 a.m. and after school until 4 p.m. On Tuesday, Jan. 22, the book fair will be open during the Sixth Grade Novel Night from 6 until 7:30 p.m.

Parents, families, and friends are invited to check out the book fair for everything from books to pens, pencils, bookmarks, erasers, books, diaries, posters, and many other items. Gift cards may be purchased and used any time during the week.

Offered again this year is the availability of shopping the CMS/Scholastic Book Fair online. Patrons can simply go to, select school state (Missouri), school city (Chillicothe), and school (Chillicothe Middle School). The school's homepage offers numerous options for selecting titles, series sets, Spanish titles, and other great gifts. Customers may even send wish lists and eCards to family and friends.

All profit from the fair is used to buy books for the CMS library.
