Bring a Book, Leave a Book Program
It’s a simple and wonderful way to exchange one or two great fictional/non fictional books or current magazines you’ve read. There’s a bookshelf located over in the basement break room at Bray Hall which will have a label saying, “Bring a book, leave a book” for anyone on campus to peruse. Current favorite magazines and books in good, readable condition only. No textbooks are permitted. It is just another way for anyone on campus who loves to read to spread the joy by bringing in a few books and seeing if there’s one or two you wish to read. Please bring in no more than three books/magazines. If you have more than that, consider recycling them through your nearest library or recycling center.
