We Priced a Ton of Children’s Books!

Well, okay, more like 800 pounds if you want to get technical! But we cleared off a whole skid, left a whole lot of empty boxes and now have many, many carefully priced and packed children’s books in their respective categories of Baby books, picture books, chapter books, and books for teens. There were even enough books in there to fill a box for homeschooling and parenting. We had 12 volunteers today and we’re very grateful for all of their handwork and to Wendy for her wonderful peanut butter pie!

If you meant to come out and the timing just wasn’t right, don’t despair, we had so much fun today we may well do it again in September sometime. Watch this space for updates.

Are you surrounded by stacks of books? Need a place to bring them? Would you like the sale of your books to support several  Dayton-based charities? We’ve got the spot for you. It’s the Book Fair Foundation, reselling books to benefit good works since 1970.  You can find us at 2181 Embury Park Road. Beginning Tuesday, March 10, we’re open Tuesdays and Thursdays 9 to 3, Wednesdays 3 to 7 and on Saturdays from 10 to 1.  If you have a large number of books to donate (or just have questions, or maybe you want to volunteer) you can call us at 937.999.4491
