These Books Need You
Come help us price and sort books for Ohio's biggest second hand book sale.

The Book Fair Foundation collects, sorts and prices books year round for our annual bookfair, the biggest used book sale in Ohio. Proceeds raised from the sale benefit three Dayton-area non-profits each year. The beneficiaries for 2019 are Community Action Partnership, Dayton Day of the Dead Festival and the Greater Dayton LGBT Center.

We are looking for volunteers to help us with sorting and pricing the books at our offices at 2181 Embury Park Road in Dayton. We are open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. If you can come in on a Thursday that would be marvelous! (Any day would work, really, but Thursdays in particular could use some more volunteers.)

Volunteers here range in age from 16 to 93, from every walk of life, and have in common an enthusiasm for books. We break for ice cream every day at 12:30.

We also have volunteer opportunities for drivers and packers for book pick-ups around the Dayton area.

Find out more about us at our website or give us a call at 937.999.4491. You can also contact us through email at or just stop by any time we're open and we'll give you the tour!

Mission Statement

"The mission of the Book Fair Foundation, Inc. is to receive and collect donated books which we resell through an annual book fair and other channels in order to raise money for a variety of charitable interests. In addition, we also redistribute donated books to schools, clinics, nursing homes, soup kitchens, the county jail, and other entities where books are needed."


The Book Fair Foundation collects books year round which are priced, sorted and packed for our annual sale in November. Each year we choose three local non-profit groups to share from the proceeds of the sale. This is our fifth year supporting local groups; we have 45 years of supporting a single charity, for which we raised over two million dollars.

Our volunteers range in age from 20 to 90+, and some have been with us for more than three decades. We always have a variety of volunteer opportunities.


We'll work with your schedule.
