Kennesaw Parks & Recreation's Book 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 vinyl records, as well as DVD movies on Thursday and Friday, and receive a ticket redeemable for the same number of items during "open swap" time on Saturday.

Kennesaw Parks & Recreation’s annual book swap will take place at the Ben Robertson Community Center located at 2753 Watts Drive. Parking will be available on site.



Kennesaw Parks & Recreation seeks willing hearts and helping hands to assist with set-up, execution and breakdown of event activities. Assistance is needed during drop off and at the event with receiving, sorting, counting and bagging items. Volunteers must have the ability to bend, stoop, stand and lift up to 20lbs.

We invite you to explore our list of volunteer opportunities and sign-up for a volunteer shift on our registration website, CivicRec. Please select “Volunteer Opportunities” to see a full list of volunteer opportunities for the annual Book Swap.

For questions, please email our Partnerships & Events Specialist, Mara Clauson.
