All attendees must enter/exit Exhibition Hall from the Mercer Street entrance, through a private lobby that includes a box office and a coatroom.
A 1200 vehicle parking garage is located directly across from Exhibition Hall, and there are other pay-for-use parking lots and street parking nearby.

The book fair producers respectfully request that all coats, backpacks, large briefcases, packages and bags be checked at the coatroom before entering the exhibition area.

For security reasons, visitors will not be allowed to bring books into the fair.
