JHS’ Raider Reader Club Holds Annual Book Swap

The JHS Raider Reader Book Club recently held its Bi-annual Book Swap for two days in the JHS library. Students brought books from home that they have read and were willing to swap for others that look interesting to them.

“As teachers, we want to show students that we value reading, so we encourage students to bring a book from home that they don’t want anymore and trade it for one at the Book Swap.  If a student does not have a book to trade, we have a stash of donated books that we give them. The goal is to encourage outside reading for fun,” said Barbi Price, Raider Reader Advisor and JHS English Department Chair.

The JHS Raider Reader Club hopes students will find something of interest to read over break and possibly to give as gifts to their families and friends.

“The JHS Book Swap allows students to pick new books to enjoy, while recycling old ones for others,” said JHS student Sydney Deppas who is a member of the Raider Readers. “This year, I choose books to give as Christmas gifts. Because the selection changes each set, you never know what you may find! It is a great program to have at our school.”

“The Book Swap gives students, who might not have much exposure to books, a chance to see a broad variety of reading material. It’s fun, it’s free, it’s cool!” said Mike Tuccio, JHS’ Social Studies Department Chair
