Missing the thrill of the Newberry Book Fair and wishing you had a box of new-to-you books to explore? Hoping to test your literary luck? Wondering if you can read an entire box of books before next Book Fair?  


We've got just the thing for you! Purchase a box of used books filled from one of Book Fair's most popular categories. Each box contains 15-30 books, depending on the category, and includes books whose titles will be a mystery to you until you open the box.   


Orders can be placed anytime during the week, but no later than 4 pm Thursday for Friday pickup.  


Boxes must be picked up at the Newberry on Fridays, between 10 am and noon. When picking up book boxes, please arrive at the Newberry’s north entrance (via the Oak Street parking lot). After ringing the video phone at the door, you’ll receive your box of books to take home and explore.  

We regret that we cannot accept Book Fair materials at this time. No returns please

Please note; We Cannot Ship Bookfair Mystery Boxes.  

Do not order a mystery box unless you are able to pick it up from the Newberry Library itself. Our apologies.
