We are excited to announce a Riverbend Book Fair at Aesop’s Fable, an independent bookshop located in Holliston. The fair will run Sunday, November 28 through Tuesday, November 30. During this time, you have the option to shop in person or online.

20% of all purchases (excluding LEGO) by Riverbend friends and families will be donated to the school's PTO.

We have recommendations for kids below. For our new friends who have yet to visit the shop, we have over 5,000 titles on the shelves for kids and adults alike (including cookbooks!). We also have a great selection of puzzles, games and literary themed gifts.

In addition, your teachers have put together their book 'wish lists' - we have included the links below. What a great way to help them build their classroom libraries and please don't forget the specialists who do so much for every student!


HOW TO SHOP

You can shop online or in the bookshop. For all online purchases, select SHIP (RIVERBEND BOOK FAIR) when checking out. You will need to enter your email and billing address but there will be no charge. All your purchases will be bagged up and delivered to the school by December 15.

All items purchased online from the Teacher Wish List will also be sent directly to the school. We will wrap these books and address them to the teacher and sign them from the "Last Name" Family.

For in person shopping, please visit us at 400 Washington Street in Holliston (below and behind Crafted). Aesop's Fable is open 10 - 5pm daily. When you checkout, please let the cashier know you are shopping the RIVERBEND BOOK FAIR. If you purchase a book for a teacher's Wish List, please let the cashier know so we can avoid duplicate purchases.

Private shopping appointments are available from 5 - 7pm each evening during the book drive. Please call (508) 429-2031 or email (aesops01746@gmail.com) the shop to reserve a private 30 minute time slot for you and your family.
