The Great Book Swap

Where Everyone Gets a Book to Read!

Runn Elementary is always looking for new ways to promote literacy among our students. Last November , the library held “The Great Book Swap.” Students were given a ticket for every used book they brought from home, and they were able to submit their ticket for “new-to-them” book(s) that other students had donated. Students who were not able to bring a book to swap were still given a book, provided by the library. Now everyone has a book to read!
