BOOK EXCHANGE IN THE LIBRARY!

The Bradbury Library is opening a special second-hand book exchange area for students to use.

February/March Family Project: Do your children have too many books on their shelves? Would you like to make room for new ones? Perhaps take time with your children to think about clearing out books they have grown out of or no longer enjoy, send your children to the library with the books to swap them!



Thanks for reading!

We look forward to accommodating your needs. Thank you for supporting our huge projects, sharing your thoughts, supporting the library programs!
