Give your Middle School student’s outgrown children’s books a second life by donating them to Bookswap, November 6-10

If stacks of children’s books are filling all the crannies and nooks in your house, it might be time to consider culling your children’s book collection! Bookswap is grateful for your donations of gently used children’s books. Books can be dropped off November 6-10, 7:30-8:30 a.m., in the Gordon Parks Arts Hall Loading Dock, or the U-High Entrance/Lobby. Books suitable for younger readers are needed: books for early readers, chapter books, non-fiction, popular series, etc. Any books remaining after Bookswap will be donated.

  • Books must be in readable condition (no torn or missing pages)
  • Books must be appropriate for Nursery/Kindergarten, Primary, and Lower School students  (no board books, high school or adult books)
  • Books can be fiction or nonfiction
  • Beginning chapter books are very popular (Junie B Jones, Magic Tree House, etc.)

There will be an inter-grade challenge for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and an individual advisory challenge again this year.

Volunteers Still Needed! It takes a lot of folks to make Bookswap happen. Please help by volunteering to sort books, help kids find books, set up or take down. We need you! Please sign up to to volunteer for Bookswap here.
