We had another fantastic Book fair with Crane! …the highest sales ever! Thank you to your staff for helping me every time I called. I got packages(restocks) sent to me the very next day :)!
Holly Woodley, Curry Elementary
Because the Crane Book Fair is still small school friendly with discounts on books…and not raising the cash profit margin so high. The “competition” raised theirs so high we could not reach anymore!
Marydell McQueen, Byrd Elementary
Friendliness and helpfulness that the company always provides. Also everyone is very accommodating to my needs and schedule.
Monica Moore, Hayden Elementary
Great prices…a large amount of discount books and affordable toys for our students.
Amber Thornton, West Point Elementary
Excellent products and availability of staff.
Cheryl Clark, Highland Gardens
I wanted children to buy books that were priced reasonably and I wanted money for the library. The pricing of the books & set up/take down led me to Crane along w/ other librarians’ recommendations.
Anne Batey, J. E. Woodard Elementary
Fair setup…it’s nice to not have to worry about setup and taking things down.
Aleisha Davis, Dannelly Elementary
Crane Book Fair employees are ALWAYS polite and respectful. I enjoy being able to communicate with a person rather than an automated voicemail system.

Primary Grades

When children are just beginning to read, we have an opportunity to instill a love of reading that will last throughout their lives.

Elementary Grades

In elementary school, we provide advanced readers with challenging material and give struggling readers books that will encourage and make reading fun.

Intermediate and Middle School

Intermediate and Middle School readers know what they like, and at Crane Books, we know how to stock the series and stories they love.

Middle School

Middle School readers need material that’s challenging but still age-appropriate. We’ll stock your book fair with the perfect titles.
