Books, gift items and various craft-related projects were on sale throughout the book fair and a portion of the proceeds gathered through the event was given to MCMH to place towards supporting in-hospital organizations.   The fair was produced through a partnership between MCMH and booksarefun.com and was staffed by Books Are Fun employees.

Another book fair is planned to be held sometime in November.
