Red Cross Book Fair
The Red Cross Book Fair is an annual fundraiser held for the Red Cross and various other charities. As many as 100,000 used books, CDs, videos, DVDs, cassettes, records, games, puzzles, maps, sheet music, and other items are on sale.
Donations are accepted throughout the year for the fair. Prices on the books drop steadily throughout the fair, culminating in a free book day, although donations are always accepted. Typically, the fair opens on Thursday and there is a $10 admission the first day. On Friday and Saturday, admission is free, and on Sunday books are sold for half price. On Monday, a grocery bag full of books costs $10.
The fair is held at the Monroe County Fairgrounds.
The 28th annual fair will be held from Sept. 29- Oct. 4, 2011.
