Area residents interested in participating can drop off gently used hardcover or paperback books, music CDs, DVD movies and vinyl records April 29 & 30 from noon to 8 p.m. and receive a ticket redeemable for the same number of items during “open swap” time on May 1.

Magazines, software, VHS or cassette tapes, adult content, unauthorized or illegal material will not be accepted.

Items will be organized into the following categories: Fiction, Children, Teen, Non-Fiction, DVDs and CDs/Vinyl. This swap is completely free; items cannot be purchased with money. Any remaining items left at the end of the swap will be donated.

There will be coffee and snacks (while supplies last) at the event. From 10 to 11 a.m., event organizers will begin doing two, three, four, etc. for one in an effort to clear out the remaining items.

Masks are highly encouraged at the event.
