Book, CD & DVD Swap @ Ben Robertson Community Center
Jan 28 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Book, CD & DVD SwapClear 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.
