St. Andrew’s Fall Book Fair

The St. Andrew’s Fall Book Fair, featuring over 20,000 used books, will be held on November 6 (2-8 p.m.) and 7 (9 a.m.-3p.m.) at 406 Hillsboro Avenue in Edwardsville, Illinois. The books are well organized and priced to sell. Categories include fiction (hardcover and paperback), children’s books, history, literature, pets, sports, regional history, cookbooks, gardening, art, biography, music, humor, large print, religion, reference, science fiction and much more. The books are sorted by category with some categories also alphabetized by author. DVDs, CDs, vinyl, jigsaw puzzles and games are also available.

Due to precautions for the prevention of COVID-19, this sale will be by appointment only, with the number of patrons at any given time limited to 12. Other precautions taken to hold the Book Fair at this time include moving the entrance to the back of the church with the exit through the normal entrance door. This will assure that patrons don’t need to pass in the hall as they are coming and going. Hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes will be available at the entrance and exit. The cashier will be separated from the public with a Plexiglas shield and social distancing will be encouraged. Both volunteers and patrons will be required to wear masks.

Reservations are required.
Sign up here or through the St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church website here. Those without computer access can call 618-656-1294 to make a reservation.

Masks are required.

Patrons may sign up for the sale in half-hour increments, with a limit of six (or three hours) per day. If they are unable to attend the church asks that they cancel their time slots to open them to others. It is anticipated that all slots will be reserved. If all slots are filled, additional appointments may be available later. Questions should be addressed to fair organizers Mike and Cindy Reinhardt who can be reached at 618-656-1294.
