Book Exchange Party

All Ages

We are hosting a book exchange party so that you can trade your old (but in good condition – clean, have all of their pages, free of marks, etc.) books for someone else’s books.  You can bring anywhere between 1 to 6 books.  For each book you bring, you can trade in your book and take a new one home.  What a wonderful way to get some new-to-you books for the summer!
