RISD Council of PTAs Used Book Fair

February 10th - 13th, 2022

The RISD Council of PTAs Used Book Fair began in 1982 and provides funds for the RISD Council of PTAs. Proceeds from the bookfair support scholarships for graduating seniors and continuing education for teachers, in addition to supporting our local PTAs.  
Council Delegates from local RISD PTAs coordinate the collection, sorting, and delivery of gently used books and other items such as DVDs, CDs, magazines and games. It takes the effort of volunteers at all levels of local and council PTAs to make this project the successful fundraiser and community service that it is.  
Items we cannot accept: books that are badly torn, dirty, or missing covers, or any magazines, pamphlets, coloring books, comic books, library discards, VHS tapes, or cassette tapes. Thank you for understanding! 

Our Sponsors Make a Difference! 

Individuals, Families, Local PTAs and Businesses can support the Used Book Fair signing up as a sponsor at one of our many sponsorship levels. Sponsors help offset the cost of table rentals, event supplies, advertising, etc.  Our sponsors are also key to help make this a successful fundraiser. Look for sponsor opportunities at next year's used book fair!
