Book Fair by the numbers

Books donated: ~3,200

Unsold books are donated to Trinity Elementary School in New Rochelle (K-5 levels), P.S. 38 in Jersey City (middle school levels), CCVA community partners, and Housing Works Bookstore.

Money made: ~$5,000

The money will go to Katz Library to add a collaborative working space on the first floor.

Price for a bag of books: $8

Last year, it was $1 for paperback, $2 for hardcover, and $5 for a bag. The prices were raised to $2, $3, and $8 respectively because inflation raised the cost of library expenses.
