PS 261 logoWelcome to P.S. 261's Summer 2021 Virtual Book Fair and fundraiser!


Here are our picks for great books to read this summer.

Hello, P.S. 261! We are all looking forward to summer, and the longer days mean more time to READ! We are also so excited to be partnering with Greenlight for our summer virtual book fair this year. There are lots of picture books, early readers, chapter books, graphic novels, and non-fiction for all reading levels and interests. Plus all purchases earn 15% back for the school! Just be sure to enter PS261SUMMER at checkout. Books can be shipped right to you, or you can pick up orders from their two Brooklyn stores.

Be sure to read all the details below, and check out the lists full of books students will love.

Happy reading!
Ms. Lauren and the Book Committee


Orders from this list and the rest of the Greenlight website are eligible for a 15% fundraiser for the P.S. 261, valid from June 14th to September 14th. In order for 15% of your order to be donated to the P.S. 261, you must enter the PS261SUMMER coupon code in the "Coupon Discount" section of checkout (and click "Apply to order"). This is how Greenlight will track applicable sales.  

Online book orders to ship are being fulfilled through our partner supplier, and will ship directly to your home in 3-7 business days if in stock. Check out these FAQs about our current direct-to-home fulfillment program, or our general online ordering FAQs.

If instead you'd like to order books to pick up at one of our store locations, please feel free to do so! Note each specific store location's stock levels when selecting books listed as "Available In Store Now" If a book is listed as "Not In Store / Available to order," please note that the book will not be available to pick up until it has arrived in the store in around 5-10 business days.

Any title whose availability is listed as "Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now" can be ordered but won't ship or come to the stores for pickup until it is published. Avoid titles listed as "Backordered," "Hard to Find," or "Email for more information," which may be out of stock for the foreseeable future.
