The Mark Twain Library Book Fair is the oldest – and one of the largest –
in New England. Our Library was founded by Samuel Clemens, - a.k.a. Mark
Twain – in 1908. Twain moved to Redding in 1907, and had more
books than would fit in his new home here. He donated over a thousand to start the
Library; upon his death in 1910, his daughter Clara donated more for sale to build on
his fledgling Legacy in Redding. 107 years later, the Book Fair is still one of the
library's principal fundraisers.
