Bring Those Used Books!
The time is now to update and swap out some of the older tomes in your library, and what better way to do it than for charity!
- Bring 2 paperbacks or hardbacks and swap for 1 of the same type.
- Bring 4 paperbacks to swap for one hardcover.
- If you’ve run out of spare books to swap, you can donate $2 per paperback or $5 per hardback.
The bookswap raises money for local educational projects on donorschoose.org. We generally prefer to help schools and teachers that are in need of books, so when you buy or swap books at the bookswap, you help kids gain access to them!
The selection of available books depends upon what other attendees bring to trade. ConDFW does not request specific books or authors, although we suggest that you don’t bring books you know won’t trade or sell (back issues of Dr. Dobbs’ Magazine from the 1980s, volumes 4,6, and 12 of the 1973 Encyclopedia Britannica, etc.) as that defeats the purpose of collecting for charity.
