- Clear Out Your Bookshelves and Swap Your Old Stories for New Adventures
Clear out your bookshelves and swap your old stories for new adventures! Kennesaw Parks & Recreation’s Book, CD & DVD Swap is a fun, FREE and easy way to freshen-up your library. Here’s how it works: Drop off your gently used hardcover or paperback books, music CDs and DVD movies on Thursday and Friday, January 26-27 from 12 to 8 p.m. and receive a ticket redeemable for the same number of items during “open swap” time on Saturday, January 28 from 8 to 11 a.m. Books must have their front and back covers intact and be in good condition. CDs and DVDs must be in their original cases and fully operable. Magazines, software, record albums, VHS or cassette tapes, adult content, unauthorized or illegal material will not be accepted. After the event, all unclaimed items will be donated to charitable organizations. This is not a book sale. It is a FREE media swap. Items will not be available for purchase.
Assistance is needed during the event with receiving, sorting, counting and bagging items. Volunteers must have the ability to bend, stoop, stand and lift up to 20lbs. Click here to sign up for a volunteer shift.
This year’s Valentine’s Dance Party will surely charm and delight guests as the Ben Robertson Community Center’s Banquet Hall is transformed into a whimsical wonderland of woodland fairy-tales, dazzling lights, and never-ending magical moments. Feast, play and dance the night away to all your favorite tunes spun by a professional DJ. The family-friendly event will feature an “all-you-care-to-eat” dinner and dessert bar, character entertainment and plenty of memorable photo opportunities.
All adults must be accompanied by a child and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Seating will be open; however, tables will be reserved for parties of six or more. Tickets are only $15 per person and can be purchased online here or at the Ben Robertson Community Center, 2753 Watts Drive. Advance purchase is required. Tickets are non-refundable after February 3.
