Culture on the Cheap
THIS WEEKEND: Book Swap
Many of the people reading this are probably aware that yours truly loves to read. In fact, it has become a bit of a problem: my house is overflowing with books! I am also a big fan of anything that benefits our local library. For these reasons (and more) I feel compelled to pass along that tomorrow, July 31st, Word Books will be having a book swap! Here’s the 411 per their web site:
Hey, we know you have too many books. It’s a common problem around these parts. But you still want more books. Because books are fantastic. And also you love libraries. Whatever can you do?
You can attend our first-ever book swap this Saturday, 7/31, from noon to 4pm!
As part of the Greenpoint Business Association’s Last Saturdays of Summer promotion, we’ll be hosting a book swap outside (if weather permits; if not, we’ll take it into our basement). Here’s the deal:
- Bring up to five books
- Take up to five books
- Leave a suggested donation of $1 per book
All donated money will go directly to the Greenpoint Public Library, the better to help them when the re-open after their renovations are complete.
So spread the word! Especially amongst your friends with great book collections. If this one goes well, we will definitely have more in the future.
