Free book swap tomorrow at the Tompkins Square Library branch

In case you're looking for a few new books in your life... the Tompkins Square Library is holding a New Year Book Swap tomorrow (Saturday, Jan. 4) at the branch.

Per the invite: "Bring a bag or two and take home whatever books you want! We have lots to give away, while supplies last."

"We have lots of donated books in the branch, and I’m trying to make space in our office," Library Manager Corinne Neary told me.

The swap lasts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the library, 331 E. 10th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.

On the topic of the New Year and books ... in a new campaign, the New York Public Library is encouraging every New Yorker to make a reading resolution in 2020: read, read to your child or encourage your kids to read for at least 20 minutes a day.

The reading challenge encourages New Yorkers to get library cards, see book recommendations and sign up for a new “Book of the Day” newsletter...

Ottendorfer has a book swap every Saturday until 4:00PM. Bring books or take books, there’s a book art by the door. Sometimes also CDs.
