The Buckeye Book Fair asks all students, patrons, volunteers, and authors to wear masks and remain socially distanced within the event center during all Book Fair events. This decision follows a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases statewide and a growing number of similar announcements by cities, venues, and promoters nationwide. Guests should not visit Buckeye Book Fair if they are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. These restrictions will remain in place indefinitely and are subject to change with current public health conditions and as guidance is reevaluated.
The BBF remains committed to maintaining safety for patrons, staff, and authors. As conditions change, the policy may be modified. Please visit this page of our website for the most current information.
