Book Swap

To kick off Prospect’s Summer Reading Challenge, Media Coordinator Megan Hill hosted a book swap to ensure every student had a “new-to-me” book to begin their summer reading.

From January to June, Miss Hill collected books for the book swap.  The books came from weeding the library’s collection, students’ homes, and teachers.  The students at Prospect brought in 1,157 books!! The most books brought in by a single student was 73 books!

The first week of June, the library was transformed into a book store where money was not exchanged.  The students who brought in books for the book swap were given a special invitation to select books on Monday.  These students could choose one book less than the number they brought.  This system was established in an effort to build the book swap collection and ensure each child in the school could take home a book. 

Throughout the rest of the week, each class came to the library for the remaining students to select their book.  The students could not believe Miss Hill was going to let them take a book home forever! 

It is Miss Hill’s hope that students will read every day over the summer and participate in Prospect’s Summer Reading Challenge. 

Information about the summer reading challenge can be found under the Media tab on Prospect’s website.
