Learning Resources Fair

Friday, June 9, 2017 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

This year we will again be offering both consigned and donated educational materials and much more!

As in the past, the Learning Resources Fair will be offering gently used educational materials such as reference books, curricula, workbooks, fiction, nonfiction, musical instruments, educational DVDs & videos & audio books, educational games & toys & manipulatives -- a variety of learning resources you can use to educate your family, whatever your style. Take time to gear up for the next part of your educational adventure at the Learning Resources Fair. This year's sale is sure to have a great selection of items both donated and consigned by veteran homeschoolers!

Email lrf@voyagersinc.org with any questions.

Donors

If you are looking to clear off the shelves to make room for next year, consider donating your gently used materials to Voyagers. A signed receipt for donated goods received by Voyagers, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, will be available to all donors. Voyagers receives 100% of the sale price of your items.

Please consider tagging your donated items before you drop them off --- it saves us lots of time! Donated items only need one tag, taped on the front cover or outside of the item. If you cannot, however, we will gratefully accept tagless donations. Thanks!

Tags for donated items are here: PDF or Excel.

Consignors

If you are looking to recoup some of your cost on those expensive learning materials, consider consigning items with the Learning Resources Fair. No need to register in order to participate! Each consignor can find instructions here on labeling materials as well as the tag template. Voyagers will mail checks to sellers after the sale. Consignors are responsible for arranging pickup of unsold items at the end of the sale. Any left items will become the property of Voyagers to be used in any manner, including sold in the clearance sale.

No need to register in advance for consigning! Just come in during one of our drop-off times!

Drop-Off Times

Tuesday, June 6 from 2:00 to 4:00pm

Thursday, June 8 from 10:00am to 2:00pm

If you cannot make these times, please email lrf@voyagersinc.org to make different arrangements.
