The Book Fair Foundation is comprised of a group of civic-minded people who work together collecting books to support community charities, carrying on the good works the group began in 1970. With 50 tons of books, vinyl records, CDs, movies, prints, puzzles, ephemera it’s Ohio biggest book sale. Collectible and Antiquarian book section, with a special silent auction Saturday of rare books.
They work all year collecting books, media and findings and resell those during their annual Book Fair held during the second weekend in November at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. They could still use some additional volunteers to work the event. They are looking for people with strong backs to help get books unloaded from pallets and unpacked onto their appropriate tables. Through the sale they need stockers, packers, and people to assist with check-out.
Give them a call if you can help at (937) 999-4491.
