The 26th annual American Red Cross Book Fair is quickly approaching. On October 1-6, 2009, visit the Monroe County Fairgrounds to choose from a selection of over 80,000 gently used books, CDs, videos, DVDs, cassettes, records, games, puzzles, maps, sheet music, and many other items, all of which will be on sale at bargain prices.
Admission is $10 on opening day, and the rest of the weekend is free entry. New on Friday we’ll be giving “book bucks” good for $1 off any purchase to anyone who brings non-perishable food to help Hoosier Hills Food Bank or anyone who has donated blood at a Red Cross blood drive in September.
Attendees can enjoy extended hours this year:
On Saturday buy books for half-price all day; on Sunday fill a paper bag for only
$8; on Monday fill a paper bag for $4. On Tuesday all books are free.
All proceeds help support disaster relief and emergency preparedness services in Monroe and Owen Counties. The American Red Cross is proud to be a United Way member agency. Call 812-332-7292 in Monroe County and 812-829-9233 in Owen County for more information or to volunteer. Visit us on the web at
