The Library hosted another installment of the popular, semi-annual All-Ages Book Swap on Wednesday, August 21.
The concept is simple: take home as many books as you bring to trade. The Library always seeds the swap with a healthy collection of books from patron donations. Add to that the 99 people who attended with all the books they brought, and we had ourselves quite the book trade!
We used to do separate swaps for youth and adults, but once we merged we found that patrons were even happier. They brought so many books, we had 32 boxes filled and leftover at the end of the swap! Those will go to seed the next event, or to our Friends and Foundation for their book sale.
We were lucky to have six youth volunteers for this event. Four teens signed up prior to the swap, and two joined in when they learned they could work in exchange for books. We just love to see people reading!
