What is a Community Book Swap?
A Book Swap is an event where you can swap books you no longer want for books that you do! Fiction, non-fiction, kids books, adults books, recipe books. Any genre as long as it’s in decent enough condition for someone else to enjoy.
At the Great Ashby Community Centre our Community Book Swaps are free events. There is no entry fee and we don’t charge for any books that you want to take. All we ask is that you either return any books that you have read (and have finished with) or pass them on to someone else to enjoy.
All books at the event have been donated by the community. Don’t worry if you don’t have any to bring, come and pick one up anyway. Perhaps you can donate next time.
We sell tea, cafetiere coffee, soft drinks and homemade cakes to enjoy at the event with friends or family or to take away. All cash donations as well as proceeds from the sale of the refreshments go to the charity that runs our centre.
Our first Great Ashby Community Book Swap was held in May 2021 and was an instant success! We usually hold three per year, in the Spring, Summer and late Autumn.
When is the next event?
We are now preparing for our NINTH event, which will take place on Saturday 20th April, 2pm to 4pm in Hall 2 (the hall on the left side of the building). This time we will be holding a Teddy Tombola as well as our pop-up tea room, to raise funds for our charity. We hope to see you there!
