Spring has sprung at the Book Loft! We are once again open for extended hours through the summer and early fall.
You can find us here Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Book Loft is located at 2181 Embury Park Rd. in Dayton. (Embury Park runs between Keowee and Ridge Streets along the Miami River– we’re next door to the MetroParks Police Station.)
We welcome donations of books, records, puzzles, games, movies, magazines, sheet music, posters and prints. (Yes, we’ll take your encyclopedias too..) We have people here who can help unload your car. Or if you simply can’t manage to bring your books to us, we can come and pick them up from you. We even have boxes for you to use.
We’ve chosen three wonderful local organizations as beneficiaries of our sale. They are the K12 Gallery / TEJAS, the Learning Tree Farm and FilmDayton. You can click on their names to learn more about each one of them. We are very excited to be supporting arts and education in the Dayton community this year.
As always, we welcome new volunteers. If you love books, and would like to help us sort and price for the sale, we’d love to meet you. Stop by during any of our open hours, or send us a note via this site or email if you’d like more information. For book lovers, everyday at the loft is a little like Christmas, you just never know what’s going to be in those boxes. Our volunteers range in age from 20 to 93, and come from all walks of life– what we have in common is our love of books.
You may have heard news about the Fairgrounds— but as it turns out, we have been invited to hold our sale during our regular weekend, Thursday November 10th through Monday, November 14th in the Coliseum Building at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds.
The Book Roundups this year will be Saturday, May 21st from 10 a.m to 1 p.m. and Saturday, August 20th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will post a reminder and locations closer to the dates.
Any questions please feel free to call us at the Loft (937) 999-4491.
