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.

We work all year collecting books, media and findings and resell those during our annual Book Fair held during the second weekend in November at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds.

Money raised from the sale of books is donated to selected Dayton-area nonprofit organizations. In 2017, proceeds from the sale will benefit the Artemis CenterCaesar’s Ford Theatre and Discover Classical -Dayton Public Radio.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated in the State of Ohio.

We’re busy getting ready for our 47th annual sale, November 10-13 at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds.

Wristbands are still available for pre-sale purchase!

Be sure to check out “Recent News” for all the dirt on what we’re up to at the Book Fair Foundation. How many cartons of ice cream DO we finish in a week? What is “Thing 2” and why do we long for it?  Where is the Book Sale this year and when is it? Do we need volunteers (of course we do). How many books will we have this year? More than you could possibly count even if you started when we open Friday, November 10th and counted clear through to Clean Sweep. And yes, it’s worth dressing up like Jane Austen. All this and more coming soon to RECENT NEWS.
