These Books Need You
Come help us price and sort books for Ohio's big...

Use your passion for books to help the Book Fair Foundation! We're so grateful to have many thousands of books donated to us by the local community, but we need your help to sort through them all in our Triage and Pricing departments!

Folks working Triage scan our incoming donations to look for treasures, separate them into a few basic categories (hardcovers, paperbacks, children’s, etc.), and then box and deliver them to those departments. This is often a fast-paced and fun environment to work in, because you just never know what’s going to turn up at the front door!

In the Pricing department, each book needs to be cleaned, priced and sorted into the category where buyers can find them - we have over 70 different categories for our shoppers!

Your assistance will help us raise money to benefit Dayton-area non-profits and make sure that our books find loving homes. Our beneficiaries for the upcoming 52nd Annual Dayton Book Fair in November 2023 are the Breast Wishes Foundation, CityHeart and the Human Race Theatre. These are great opportunities for the recently retired, folks looking to fulfill community service hours and everyone in between!

We’re open for volunteers and donations year-round at the below times:
  • Tuesdays, 10 am-4 pm
  • Wednesdays, 10 am-4 pm
  • Thursdays, 10 am-4 pm
  • Saturdays, 10 am-4 pm

Please feel free to contact us or drop by so we can give you the tour!

About Book Fair Foundation, Inc


2181 Embury Park Road, Dayton, OH 45414, US

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 donations of books, CDs, DVDs, records, puzzles and games year-round which are priced, sorted and packed for our annual sale in November at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. Each year we choose three local non-profit groups to share from the proceeds of the sale. We have supported local groups for over five years; we have 45 years of supporting a single charity, for which we raised over two million dollars.
