45 Ways to Effectively Use LEFTOVER Book Club Flyers

45 effective ways to use book club flyers cathy collier

I love Book Club Flyers…it’s so exciting to see what new books I will add to my classroom library and which ones my students can choose each month to add to their home libraries. But, honestly, some don’t have that choice. Some can’t afford a book a month. One of my favorite social media campaigns is asking for a Student Book Cub Sponsor. For $10 a year, you can sponsor a child to get the $1 book a month for the school year. What a great opportunity to sponsor a child, grow a love of reading, and build a home library. BUT, that means you might have a million leftover book club flyers. USE THEM!
