Chapter Book Swap Book Drop-Off Begins

Monday, March 25, 2019

Do you have a pile of books sitting in your room that you have already read? Would you like a chance to trade them for something new-to-you? Donate your gently used children's chapter books at the Children's Desk during March 25 - April 12 during open Library hours and earn tickets (up to 12 per child). Then, come and exchange your tickets for other donated books during the Book Swap. All extra books will be donated to the Friends of the Allen Public Library.

Book Drop Off: March 25 - April 12 at the Children's Desk
Book Swap: Saturday, April 13, 10:30 - 11:45 a.m. in the Children's Program Room
