Benefitting Education & Literacy Programs
Greater St. Louis Book Fair is one of the nation's oldest, largest and most popular charity book sales. Since 1950, book lovers and collectors have enjoyed bargain prices on a diverse and quality selection of new, gently-used and rare books. Fair proceeds benefit local non-profit education and literacy programs.
Greater St. Louis Book Fair sells hundreds of rare and collectible books, movies, music, comics and ephemera. Our inventory includes first editions, limited editions, out of print editions, signed copies and other treasures.
Volunteers begin posting rare and collectible inventory in the summer. Check back frequently for new updates.
