Hoosier Hills Food Bank Book Fair
October 14, 2021 - October 19, 2021
Hoosier Hills Food Bank will host the Bloomington Community Book Fair October 14 – 19, 2021 at the Monroe County Fair Grounds. This book fair benefits Brown County, as well as five more surrounding counties in Indiana. The book fair features over 100,000 items – books and much more. There are specialty areas with large collections of children’s books, rare and collectible “better books,” horror and science fiction books, games and puzzles, comics, stamps and coins, and a big media section with DVDs, CDs, records, and tapes all at great, low prices. There will also be programs and food trucks throughout the week. Bring a canned food donation for a $1 book buck coupon!
For more than 30 years, Hoosier Hills Food Bank has promoted a message of sustainability – that too much food is wasted and should instead be channeled to people at risk of hunger. In many ways, the same is true of used books. We can’t afford to be a throwaway society – not with food, not with books and certainly not with people.
