That’s all folks. The organizers of the Friends of the Oak Park Public Library Annual Book Fair are no longer accepting donated materials for this year’s book fair at any library location. 

“Due to the incredible generosity of our community, we have reached storage capacity at the Main Library,” volunteers said in a statement. 

If you want to donate materials, you should, instead, drop them off at the Scoville South Hall entrance of Oak Park and River Forest High School, 201 N. Scoville Ave., until July 26.

Meanwhile, information for this year’s book fair, which will be held on Friday and Saturday, July 27 and July 28, at OPRF, is as follows: 

Friday, July 27, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. $5 admission fee, $5 per electronic device. Free admission for Friends of the Oak Park Public Library.

Saturday, July 28, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free admission.

Sunday, July 29, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Nonprofit and educator appreciation

Sunday, July 29, 12-2 pm. Free admission and free materials to everyone with valid nonprofit or educator ID, or 501(c)3 document.

Book fair organizers said they still need volunteer sorters with previous book fair experience. No new volunteers are currently needed. For questions, call 708-697-6930 or email
