Event—Events for Donors

Book Fair Preview Day 2023

Chicago’s most popular used-book sale returns, and supporters of the Newberry’s Annual Fund are invited to be the first to hunt for literary treasures at the Newberry Book Fair.

Members of the Newberry Associates at the Authors level and above, members of Next Chapter, and President’s Fellows receive an invitation for two to Book Fair Preview Day. All eligible donors will receive a postcard invitation in the mail prior to the event.

To learn more about the benefits of supporting the Newberry, or to make a gift, please visit Annual Support and Membership or contact the Development office at (312) 255-3581 or via email at contributions@newberry.org.

Everything for sale at the volunteer-led Book Fair is generously donated, and all proceeds help further the Newberry’s mission to foster a deeper understanding of our world through research and learning.

Know in Advance:

  • Book Fair will be cashless: only debit and credit cards accepted.
  • Please bring your own shopping bags.
  • We recommend taking public transportation to the Book Fair, as street parking is limited.
