The 14th annual Book and Media Swap will be held on Wednesday, April 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the lobby of the Conference Center in Building 549.

The staff is holding the swap to coincide with National Library Week, an annual celebration of libraries that occurs in April.

As of April 10, the library had collected nearly 2,000 books, DVDs, and CDs for the swap. Employees who donated these items received book cards indicating the number of items donated. 

On April 16, employees can redeem those cards for “new” items—as many as are indicated on the cards.

“The Scientific Library staff encourages all employees to use this event as an opportunity to recycle reading materials, share with others, save some money, and find new books to read,” said Sue Wilson, principal manager of the Scientific Library.
