Bethel Elementary's Winter Book Swap
Bethel Elementary's Exceptional Children's Department hosted a Winter Book Swap on Dec. 6 and 7.
Students were asked to bring in gently used books that they were finished reading. Students were entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire for each book they donated. Students brought in 4,000 books, which enabled each student to choose five new books to read.
Hunter Csledy was excited about the event.
"I've been waiting several months to find this Swindle book," he said.
Emily Smith said, the books were interesting.
"You just don't want to stop reading them," she said.
Other students were excited because many of the titles to choose from are not available in the school library.
Bethel Elementary's Principal, Jill Barker told the staff, "If a child does not love to read, we have failed."
