Book Swap


Come one, come all!  The Jennings Book Swap is Wednesday March 16th,6:30pm-8pm!  What is the Book Swap?  It’s a great event where kids (and parents!) can clean out their bookshelves & come home with “new” books.  
Go through your shelves at home & bring in a book(s) you no longer want to keep and are willing to swap. Parent volunteers will collect books & distribute tickets each morning before school starts in the school lobby beginning Friday, March 11th through Weds, March 16th.
For every book you donate you receive 1 ticket (price/format doesn’t matter) and you can bring in as many books as you want.  Then on Wednesday March 16th at 6:30pm, bring your tickets to the Jennings gym and peruse the tables and tables of available books, which will be arranged by age/reading level. Each “new” book will cost 1 ticket.
PARENTS OF MIDDLE SCHOOLERS!  In years past, we have had an over-abundance of books for K-3 (from the older elementary kids) but very little for the 4th-5th graders.  So, if your middle schooler wants to donate some age-appropriate books, that would be very welcome!
CAN YOU VOLUNTEER TO HELP? PLEASE! If you’re available to help collect books in the mornings leading up to the event, or the night of the Book Swap itself (set up, break down, etc.) please email Katey Goldberger at
This is a great event that gets kids excited about reading and books!  Any books leftover after the swap will be donated to local charities, including New Haven Reads, a community book bank that offers free reading tutoring.
