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. 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.
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 Center, Caesar’s Ford Theatre and Discover Classical -Dayton Public Radio.
Through the generosity and cooperation of Grismer Tires they are extending Round Up at every Grismer location in the Miami Valley, Springfield and Troy from Monday, May 15th through Monday, May 22nd. Just bring your books inside to the barrel in the waiting room– don’t forget to get your receipt and new bookmark from the Grismer staff while you’re there.
On Saturday, May 20th, they’ll also be at all their regular locations as well, from 10 am to 1 pm, and at our Book Loft Location, 2181 Embury Park Road, Dayton at least ’till 3 pm and probably longer.
Please note that we will not be collecting at Montgomery County Fairgrounds this spring, even though it said so in the ad– but we WILL be at Fairgrounds for our annual sale, this year September 8 -September 11, 2017.
The Book Fair Foundation is a 501c3 registered charity, and your donations are tax-deductible. Proceeds from this year’s sale benefit Artemis Center, Caesar’s Ford Theatre Company and Dayton Public Radio.
*They welcome donations of books, vinyl records, VHS, DVD, CDs, puzzles, board games, prints and maps.
And if you can’t manage to bring your donations to them, give them a call to ask about their free pick-up service at 937.999.4491.
