April’s known for its spring showers, but April is also book swap month!
Our 4th annual Book Swap took place here at YUP during the week of April 21st– 25th. We invite all of you to celebrate in spirit with us–wherever you are–and participate in a book swap in your area. This is your chance to refresh your bookshelves at home – bring in the books you’ve read (but don’t need to keep forever and ever) or haven’t read (and have finally admitted to yourself you’re never going to read) and browse the volumes brought in by your friends and colleagues for replacements!
Consider setting up a book swap at your workplace, school, or neighborhood! Here’s how we’re organized our own:
- The YUP Book Swap took place in the basement kitchen of our building. Baked goods appeared periodically throughout the week to keep you from getting too hungry as you shop for free books. (We highly recommend having baked goods if you’re setting up your own book swap!)
- Please DON’T bring: damaged books, encyclopedias, magazines, outdated material (e.g. science, medicine), foreign language books
- Donate the remaining books to charity. Here at YUP, remaining books are being donated to the New Haven Reads Community Book Bank.
