YMCA Book Fair

The 39th annual YMCA Book Fair came to a successful conclusion on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.  A very, very special thank you goes out to all our patrons, volunteers and staff who came together this August to support the work of the YMCA in the St. Louis community through our 39th Annual Book Fair fundraiser. Our fair brought together more than 5,000 book lovers, 600 volunteers, YMCA staff, and more than a half a million books in support of our Cause!
