History

The Atlanta Branch held its first Bookfair on September 15-17, 1960 in a tent on the open-air upper level of the brand-new Lenox Square Mall. Members, friends, families, and neighbors donated books. The event was later moved to the open-air lower level near the Delta Air Lines rotunda, and in 1973 the event moved into Lenox’s newly enclosed, air-conditioned mall. As Bookfair continued to grow, the Cobb County and North Fulton Branches joined Atlanta in operating the sale in 1997. Bookfair moved to Perimeter Mall in 2006.

Bookfair has grown into the primary fund-raising activity of the Atlanta Branch. This project has the potential of engaging every member in some activity: donating, sorting, pricing or picking up books; promotional activities; designing the layout and setting up Bookfair; and telephoning, cashiering, or serving as sales personnel during the event.
