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. (We choose new ones each year.)

We are looking for volunteers to help us with sorting and pricing the books at our offices at 2181 Embury Park Road. We are open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 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 are very quiet right now.)

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.
