Help get new reading materials into the hands of all FKES students! Volunteers are needed to organize and staff the book swap tables in the FKES atrium. It's easy and rewarding! Read on for more details or skip below to sign up for day(s) and time(s). Thank you!
Organizing books: There will be 2 tables - 1 table for picture books and 1 for chapter books. Cardboard boxes will be available for sorting books by categories (Spanish language books, Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House, Lego, Harry Potter etc. )
Swap Guidelines: On Monday, books are only collected and sorted, not distributed. Students will get a voucher for books they donate. Tuesday-Thursday, students can swap books/redeem vouchers. Similar type books are a 1:1 swap. Going from a picture book to a chapter book, it is a 2:1 swap. Students should ideally select books on their reading level. This helps ensure there are enough chapter books for the older students. On Friday, each student may choose a book, regardless of whether they donate one.
*We'll have a folder with volunteer tips and extra vouchers behind the book tables.
