6th Annual FREE Book Swap is almost here!October 26, 2017
Bring your beloved and dusty!
are proud to co-host the 6th annual Free Book Swap, presented this year by our lead sponsor, the Wayne County Bar Association.
This is the only event in Wayne County that knows no limit! No requirements, no limitations, all books. The only goal is see every book into a new home. Whether you bring ten, one or none on Saturday, November 18, you have from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to browse the space and fill your arms (bags and boxes) with literary loot.
Do you have “a whole bunch of books” to drop off? Large quantities (50 or more) are encouraged to arrive early. Place the number of books on the outside of each bag or box for quick calculating! The event’s collection and distribution totals are recorded and submitted to the America Recycles Day website for bragging rights. Large quantities can be unloaded on Thurs., Nov.16 from 5:00 pm -6:30 pm and Fri., Nov.17 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The Free Book Swap invites everyone to participate free of charge and to help themselves to as much as they can read. Community neighbors, organizations, agencies, businesses, groups, artists, and collectors are encouraged to visit the event on Saturday, November 18. Any leftovers will be shipped to Better World Books to support global literacy efforts.
Over the past several years, this annual FREE event, has relocated tens of thousands of books to new homes and families. It is one of the single largest recycling events in our area. Volunteers make this event possible! We welcome new volunteers to join in the sorting and story-sharing. Interested volunteers may contact Jenna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This not-for-profit event is supported by community donations and sponsors to cover shipping expenses, event materials and volunteer hospitality. A special thank you to this year’s Presenting Sponsor, the Wayne County Bar Association! Thank you to this year’s Book Sponsor, the Frey-Fetsock Funeral Home, and our Support Sponsors, Platform Industries and Wayne Memorial Hospital.
