The Cary Elementary PTA Bookstop



We need used books!!

We need volunteers!

The Bookstop is a PTA-run used bookstore located inside the school and is a HUGELY popular program. Its success is due in large part to the support of parent volunteers and our school staff…..and of course donated books!


  • Students are paid pretend money (“Bookbucks”) for the used books they bring in from home.  Teachers also provide Bookbucks as incentives in the classroom.
  • The kids can use the Bookbucks to “purchase” books from the bookstop, which is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8-9 am.
  • If your child brings home books with colored dots on them, these are theirs to keep


  • they can bring them back and trade for new books when they are finished reading them.

Please come by our table at Open House and Orientation!!  We are in need of parent volunteers. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact or
