CHECK OUT THESE UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS!
Used Book Swap
Looking for a good book? Come to the Used Book Swap at the library December 9-17! This is a fun way to treat yourself to something new to read or share a book you are finished with. Just wrap up a gently used/nearly new book from your home library and mark it with a general statement of what it is – novel, romance, children’s picture book, biography, etc. Bring your gift wrapped book to the library and exchange it for another. Everyone who participates will be entered into a drawing for a prize. The Used Book Swap is open all hours the library is open between December 9-17.
