Book Events in Pasadena, CA - Jan 2014

Do you live in the Pasadena area? We have a couple of great book events lined up in the area!

These events are free to the public.

First off, we're having another Book Swap! This is open to families, so please bring whatever books you would like to trade them for others.

Family Book Swap

Where: Pasadena Public Library, 285 East Walnut Street Pasadena, CA 91101 [ MAP ]

When: Saturday, February 1, 11 am - 1 pm. Please ask the main desk if you cannot find us right away, as the library may choose to move us from one location to the other. 

What: Bring at least one book in good condition, then pick up anything at the swap that you would like to take with you. There is no one-to-one rule for swapping; we usually just go by the honor system. Anything from picture books to middle grade, YA and adult books are welcome. 

Books left over from the event will either go to the library bookstore or to a school in need. Items that cannot be used for either will be recycled.

RSVP is not necessary but would be appreciated! Call (626) 744-4066, option 4 or email Jane Gov at jgov@cityofpasadena.net and make sure you mention the Family Book Swap.

Adults and teens are welcome to join the YA Book Club discussions.
