Avid readers will love the upcoming Book Swap and Bake Sale hosted by the Friends of the Cecil County Public Library. This is a great opportunity to browse stacks of gently used books and exchange your used books for new-to-you books.
Please join the Friends on Saturday, May 5, for their 3rd Annual Book Swap and Bake Sale. Bring with you up to ten gently used, of current interest books and exchange them for a like number of books. Enjoy chatting with other book lovers and find out what they have been reading. Then, don’t forget to visit the bake sale table of incredibly tempting and delicious baked goodies. I promise you, it will be too difficult to pass up purchasing a few items to take home!
In addition, this year you can help support future teen programs by purchasing 50/50 raffle tickets. These tickets are also currently on sale at all Cecil County Public Library branches, $1 per ticket or $5 for 6 tickets. The final drawing will be at the Book Swap at 2 p.m. You do not need to be present at the time of the drawing.
So circle May 5 on your calendar and stop by the Elkton Central Library between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. And, feel good about “being green” — this event is free and the swapped books are free, so you not only save money, you may save a tree or two!
What books will you be swapping?
