St. Louis (KSDK) -- Five tractor trailer loads of books have been unloaded and stacked at Kennedy Recreation Complex for the YMCA Bookfair.

A group of volunteers started the fair back in 1978 as a way to raise money for the YMCA.  At the time, it was a one day event, these days the fair stretches six days.

The doors at 6050 Wells Road open this afternoon at 4 p.m. for the diehards and admission is $10.

The rest of the time there is no admission fee.  A couple of days to remember are Tuesday and Wednesday.  On Tuesday, all books are half price, and Wednesday it is $10 box day.

The book fair is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday through Wednesday.  For more information, click here.
