Do you love books? Are you looking for something to do to give back to the community? We might be the place for you. For 46 years the Dayton Book Fair has collected and sold second hand books to benefit other non-profits in our community. We also provide books to literacy campaigns and under served book-reading populations. We are an all-volunteer 501c3 organization. At our "book loft" at 2181 Embury Park Rd in Dayton, we have a number of different volunteer opportunities.

  • Research, sorting, pricing, and packing books (any one or combination of those)
  • Assistance with pick-ups: we have barrels around town, plus we offer a service to pick up book donations from people who aren't able to bring them in.
  • Want to learn how to sell books on eBay? We'll be happy to show you!
We're open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 10 to 3 and Wednesdays from 1 to 7. Our Book Loft is a pleasant climate controlled work environment and we break for ice cream every day. You can find out more about us on our website or on our Facebook page-- If you're interested in volunteering, come by the Book Loft during our open hours and we'll give you a tour. Or you're welcome to contact us through our Facebook or webpages or through Volunteer Match.
