Parent/carer and teacher’s books can be swapped between 3.30pm and 4.00pm. Any children’s books which are not taken home will be used to replenish the school and class libraries and any adult’s books which are not taken home will be donated to a local charity shop.

Please send any books for the community book swap into school by the 21st June. Please ensure books are in a good condition for others and it would be appreciated if children’s and adult’s books are clearly labelled or separated.
