Will you tell us your Buckeye Book Fair Story?

Please join us to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of our cherished Buckeye Book Fair. We’d love to hear your memories of attending the event. What started out as a support initiative for Ohio Authors through The Daily Record Newspaper (Wooster, Ohio) in 1986 became a staple of Ohio Book Lovers. To celebrate the perseverance of hundreds of volunteers, readers, and authors & illustrators in Ohio, The Buckeye Book Fair will spotlight its oral tradition by hosting archival events in Wooster, Ohio at the Wayne County Public Library. There are three ways to participate. You can register for a small group activity at the Wayne County Public Library, send in your memory through the mail or through an online portal, or visit us during the small group activity to record your memory by video. Registered participants will handle and preserve the original materials from the Buckeye Book Fair archives.  These materials will be combined with the video stories and letters and then placed on display at the Wayne County Public Library and at the annual Buckeye Book Fair.

We know that Literacy changes peoples’ lives by opening the mind and heart of the reader. We are fortunate to see students and families holding new books and we realize the stories of generations of families attending the Buckeye Book Fair. Our hope is to collect, celebrate, and share these stories with you during our anniversary year. Will you please join us and share your memories?
