St. Louis (KSDK) - What started as a small, one day book fair in 1978 to raise money for the YMCA is now a six day event.
There was a mad rush when the doors opened Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. by people who had lined up way before sunrise.
Friday night is First Selection Night which mean there's a $10 admission fee.
The fair is free Saturday through Wednesday at Kennedy Recreation Center, located at 6050 Wells Road in south St. Louis County.
