SalemRecycles Free Book Swap & TerraCycle Collection

September 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

SalemRecycles Free Book Swap returns to the Community Life Center at 401 Bridge Street on Saturday, September 16th from 10:00am-1:00pm! Swapping isn’t necessary — you may donate, take away, or both.
In addition to books, the swap accepts CDs, DVDs, video games, records (all in original cases, please), plus puzzles and greeting cards. All items must be clean, dry, and mildew free. Sorry, no magazines or VHS and cassette tapes.
TO DONATE, please drop off at the Community Life Center on Friday, September 15th from 4:00-7:00pm, or Saturday, September 16th from 9:00am-noon.
All leftover materials will be donated or recycled.
