Dear Friends of the Dayton Book Fair,
It has been a difficult week for difficult decisions. Out of an abundance of caution and because a significant percentage of our volunteer staff are in the at-risk-for-death age rage for Covid19, we are closing the doors of the book loft effective immediately through Friday, May 29, when we will re-evaluate. During this time, we will also be suspending pickups from people’s homes and businesses. We understand that some people are of the opinion that the measures being taken at this time are a massive overreaction, I hope they’re right. But it is simply not worth the risk to endanger anyone’s health over second-hand books.
In the meantime, you have all those books you’ve been wanting to read, right?
Take care, stay home, stay well and keep washing your hands. We’ll keep you posted.
Executive Director, Dayton Book Fair
