Annual Book Fair

Summer 2020 book fair cancelled

On Monday, June 15, the Friends’ Board of Trustees agreed to cancel its summer 2020 book fair. This decision was influenced by several COVID-19-related factors, including the state’s public gathering limits and having no access to the Oak Park and River Forest High School’s cafeteria due to construction.
