*******In 2020, Books for Keeps shifted its model to respond to community needs by removing the financial barrier to acquiring books for community, educational, and personal use. Visit our Community Book Fair page to see how we’ve reimagined this annual event!
Below is information about the 2019 sale. We hope to be back to a more traditional – yet still community-focused – model in 2022!
