Don’t miss Chicago’s beloved Newberry Book Fair, one of the largest used-book sales in the country. Browse through more than 120,000 used books, movies, records and more in 70 categories, many of which are priced at $3 or under.
Admission is free, and all proceeds help further the Newberry’s mission. Everything for sale at the Book Fair is generously donated. Learn more about donating your books or call the Book Fair Hotline at (312) 255-3501. And don’t forget to keep up-to-date with “Uncle Blogsy,” otherwise known as Dan Crawford, Book Fair Manager, on the Book Fair Blog.
