For one week each November, the MCDS community comes together to celebrate books and our shared love of reading. Please join us for any or all of our featured events, or just come enjoy the amazing selection of books hand-picked by more than one hundred parents, faculty, and staff during our regular hours from Monday through Thursday in the Learning Resource Center. Friends and the public are welcome too!

We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Book Fair!
