Dollar Book Fair opened its first store 5 years ago in the city of Long Beach California. It all started with a dream from Jesse Pelayo. Jesse is a high school teacher and at the time he was also the chair of the Title 1 Program with Los Angeles Unified School District. His dream had always been to open up a bookstore where people would be able to come in and buy any book without having to worry about price. With help from family and friends, Dollar Book fair was born. We have had the privilege of helping many communities by providing low cost, high quality books.
