Help needed for the Tuckahoe Book Swap
The Tuckahoe Book Swap is back! Bring your gently used elementary appropriate books in exchange for tickets. Then bring those tickets to the Book Swap on June 7 to exchange for "new to you" books for the summer. To make this happen WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! Sign up to help with donations, setup, event help, and/or cleanup. We especially could use someone to help with coordinating the much-loved sweet treat for the event. See https://bit.ly/book-swap-help to find more details and sign up and contact Lisa Backer with any questions..
How it works:
At home, decide which of your gently used books would be good to exchange (a maximum of 10 per student). Books must be gently used (no rips, stains, missing pages or writing), school and age appropriate. Please no preschool books, coloring books, magazines, or adult books (including cook books targeted to adults).
Bring book donations to Tuckahoe June 5, 6, or 7 from 8-9am or June 7 for the early release from 1:15-3pm.
Students will get a ticket noting how many books they bring in, which they will then use during the Book Swap to trade for other books. (Families are also able to donate books without swapping and/or donate books directly to support the mission of Reach for Uganda.)
Students are responsible for their own tickets.
On Wednesday, June 7, from 6:30-8pm, students will bring their tickets to exchange for book/s. All trades are final. No money will be exchanged for the Book Swap. This is strictly a book recycling activity.
Once the Book Exchange has been completed, all remaining books will be donated to other programs.
The rising Kindergarten meet-up originally planned for May 13, 1-3pm has been rescheduled due to the rainy forecast. Instead, please join us on Saturday, May 20, from 9-11am at Tuckahoe Park. We look forward to meeting our kinder families then!
