Get your swap on at the Bay View Bookswap. wants to help you swap out your old reads

Are your old books collecting dust on the shelves? Looking for some new lit to add to your anthology? has your answer.

Bring your old books to Humboldt Park and join our Intern Team as they host the Bay View Bookswap Sunday, Sept. 11 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can swap out your used books for others donated by Boswell Books and brought in by other swappers, plus get automatically entered to win a free e-Reader.

Participants can take one book for every two donated, and can also buy books for just $1 apiece if you don't have anything to trade (or find an absolute must-have).

The Bookswap also boasts a great entertainment lineup, featuring live music from Keanen Kopplin at 11 a.m. and Tony Memmel at 1 p.m., paper-making workshops from the Urban Ecology Center, book discussions with Broad Vocabulary, kid-friendly activities and story times, the Living Photo Booth Project and board and lawn games – including giant human checkers.

So drop by, bring your books and enjoy a day in the park. You've got nothing to lose but those old paperbacks.
