Mail Order

At the Green Valley Book Fair, the health and well-being of our customers and employees is our number one priority. In an effort to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Book Fair is currently closed to the public and won’t be opening this weekend as originally planned – but you can still take advantage of our great deals during this time. Visit our Update page for information about mail order and Book Fair To Go purchases.

Additionally, we have decided to postpone our 50th Anniversary Celebration event that had been planned for May 17th, and we’ll announce the new date as soon as we’re able.
