Needing something new to read this summer?

Bring in your beloved teen books from your personal library to exchange for something new to read. An old book for you could be new for someone else. Or bring in your favorite books to share with others. For each teen fiction book you bring that is in good condition may grant you a book exchange to take home.

Don't have any books to swap?
Don't worry about that. We've got plenty of books to go around.
