Books-Are-Fun Book Fair Comes to Baron-Forness Library by Patrick Dewey
The Baron-Forness Library has hosted the Books-Are-Fun Book Fair every semester for the past few years.

The Books Are Fun Book Fair came to the Baron-Forness Library on Feb. 18 to 19 and will return in the fall, selling books and a wide variety of other merchandise for everyone from adults to very young children. The fair featured many different types of books, from fiction and bestsellers to sports books and cookbooks.

The fair had cookbooks for every type of diet, including gluten-free and vegetarian diets, which are trending today, particularly among college students. With such a wide array of genres, it is possible for students to purchase books for themselves, our younger sibling or our parents.

Rich Urban is the owner of Urban Crate and the supplier for Books Are Fun. He said that there are more than just books to choose from. Items such as toys, home products (bedding) and electronics are also available.

“We have [everything] from earphones, to ear buds, to voice recorders and more."

Urban also mentioned a few gift ideas for the younger siblings in your life. These gifts include puzzles and stuffed animals.

For those hoping to spread cheer or just make someone’s day, the fair also sells cards. According to Urban, they have cards for specific holidays, but also some are just simple greeting cards.

You can also find organizers, adult coloring books and brain game books to help keep your mind sharp.

Urban says the fair has a considerable amount of choices.

“If it’s out there we probably have it,” Urban said.

The Books Are Fun Book Fair travels to many types of locations, such as schools, hospitals and corporate businesses.

The fair will be returning to campus in the fall semester. So if you’re looking for a good book to read, look no further than the Baron-Forness Library and Books Are Fun.
