YMCA Annual Bookfair

YMCA Bookfair

The YMCA Annual Bookfair has been held since 1978 and began as a single day event in the gymnasium of the historic Carondelet YMCA on Loughborough in South St. Louis City. Today, it has expanded to become a six day event. After having taken over and finally outgrown the entire Carondelet YMCA, the book fair was moved to the Kennedy Recreation Center in South St. Louis County and now calls the Greensfelder Recreation Center at Queeny Park home. Many months of gathering and then categorizing thousands of books by hundreds of volunteers goes into to each YMCA Bookfair. The money raised at each bookfair goes back to the YMCA and to their outreach programs.
