Join The Newberry for Chicago’s most popular used-book binge. Browse more than 135,000 used books in 70 categories. Scour the sale for great deals on cookbooks, fiction, art books, children’s literature, collectibles, foreign language, and much more.
Everything for sale at the Book Fair is generously donated, and all proceeds help further the Newberry’s mission to build and care for an extraordinary collection and share it—free of charge—with thousands of people each year.
Following the Book Fair Blog is a great way for Book Fair fans to stay informed and entertained all year long.
Help us go green by bringing your own shopping bags.
