We’re all disappointed that Book Fair won’t fill the Newberry in the summer of 2021. However, bookworms need not despair! Enjoy the thrill of discovering your next favorite read with Book Fair Express. Purchase a mystery box of used books in one of Book Fair's most popular categories. Each box contains 20-30 titles that will be revealed when you open the box. 

Inventory is limited. Please limit purchases to two boxes per customer. Orders must be received by Thursday, July 29.

Your order will be ready for curbside pick-up in the Newberry parking lot during our traditional Book Fair weekend: Friday, July 30 or Saturday, July 31, between 10 am and 2 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: WE CANNOT SHIP BOOKFAIR EXPRESS BOXES. Any shipping added to the cart will be refunded.

We regret we cannot accept Book Fair donations at this time. No returns please. Thank you for keeping the spirit of Book Fair alive!
