Fall More in LOVE with Readingat the Book Swap! 

Hello Families, 

We are going to host a book swap on 12/23/21. This is a great opportunity for students to trade in some books that they have already read and pick out some new books that interest them! 

How it Works

From 12/2/21 to 12/22/21, students may bring in gently used books. For every book donated, students will be able to shop for one new book of their choice. Donated books are to be handed in to classroom teachers.

Book Criteria 

Please make choices carefully before bringing in books. Books will only be accepted under the following guidelines…

  •         Books must be gently used condition cover on, no rips, tears, stains, coloring, or writing on them
  •         Coloring books, activity books, sticker books, and board books will not be accepted

Book Swap

 The book swap will take place in the school’s lobby on December 23rd during the school day. Classes will sign up for a time to shop. Leftover books will be donated to the school’s Little Free Library by the front doors. 

We appreciate your support! We anticipate this to be a fun opportunity to help promote reading and further develop our love of books! 

Thank you,
