BOOK SWAP - BRING IN BOOKS BY MAY 24th!!

BOOK SWAP

WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF DONATED BOOKS FOR OUR SUMMER BOOK SWAP!!


Does your child have a pile of books sitting in their room that they have already read? Do you wish you had the opportunity to exchange them for more exciting summer reading materials?


The Book Swap is for you!


From Wednesday, May 15th – Friday, May 24th students may bring in 2-5 “gently used” books to the Library Media Center for donation.


Beginning in June, students will have the opportunity to browse books during their scheduled library media time. Students will participate in a special “campfire” swap where each student will take home two books. At this time we will also review local summer reading programs and resources with students!


Book Criteria:

Please make choices carefully when selecting books to donate. Books will only be accepted under the following guidelines:


  • Books must be appropriate for K-5.
  • Donations should be on grade level with the student donating them
  • Example: 5th grader donates a book another 4th/5th grader would enjoy!
  • Books with coloring or writing in them will not be accepted.
  • Coloring books, activity books, and sticker books will not be accepted.


If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Miller, Library Media Specialist or Marianne Barr, Library Assistant.
