American Red Cross Monroe County Chapter Book Fair



The Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross Book Fair has been held annually in Bloomington since 1983. The Book Fair funds the chapter’s mission of responding to disasters, supporting local military families, and providing lifesaving CPR and first-aid classes.

The Book Fair Committee is an enormous part of the event's success. It is composed of core Book Fair volunteers—individuals who have been with the chapter since the Book Fair began. It is important to note that the Book Fair was the brainchild of volunteers, individuals who donated—and continue to donate!—their time, energy, and talents to make our Book Fair the beloved community institution it is today.


We are located in the Commercial Building WEST at the Monroe County Fairgrounds, 5700 W. Airport Rd., Bloomington, IN 47403. From North or South US Hwy 37, take W. 2nd St. to W. Airport Rd.; turn right. The fairgrounds will be on your right.
