The Newberry Book Fair | Newberry

The Newberry Book Fair

Due to the current prohibition against large gatherings in Chicago, we will not be able to hold the 2020 Newberry Book Fair this summer. We’ll miss seeing our volunteers and shoppers, but we need to ensure the health and safety of our staff and our patrons.


Are you accepting donations?

At this time, we are not accepting donations to Book Fair.

Will I be able to get into Preview Night next year?

Yes, if you are eligible to attend Book Fair Preview Night in 2020, we will ensure you are invited to Preview Night in 2021. We do hope you will continue your support of the Newberry’s Annual Fund by renewing your membership.

Are there other ways I can volunteer at the Newberry?

Yes, we have many year-round volunteer opportunities.
