Book Swap & Donation

On Tuesday, April 10th we are going to have our 3rd annual Hawley Book Swap and Book Donation in the Multi-Purpose room. On this day, classes will come together in the MPR to pick out previously-owned books. Students will be able to label their “new” book and bring it home in celebration of all things reading!


To make this event such a success, we are asking for your help:


In your Spring Cleaning efforts, please set aside any of your gently used books that you would like to donate. (Please be sure donated books are clean from markings or torn/ripped pages.) All gently used books can be dropped off in the boxes at the front of the school or on the stage in the Multipurpose room anytime leading up to Literacy Week (April 9th-13th). Books will then be sorted by grade level and placed on tables for student selection the day of the book swap. All remaining books will be donated to a nearby school with limited resources.


Questions/concerns: don’t hesitate to write me an email, wasleys@newtown.k12.ct.us. Thanks so much for your support of this event and all your continued support of library events!!
