Washburn Get Lit Literature Festival Friday Night Book Swap

April 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Friday Night Book Swap – 5pm – 7pm at The Club

Do you have books sitting around the house that you read but don’t plan on reading again? Looking for something new or different but want to save some money? Then this event is for you! During the week of April 8th drop off any new or gently used books to the chamber office for the Friday Night Book Swap. You will get a ticket for each book you bring in that can be used during the event on the evening of April 12th. You will be able to choose one book for every ticket you have. Any books left over that evening will be used to fill the local free little libraries.

How it works –

  1. Bring in your new or gently used books to the chamber office. We will take down your name and keep track of how many books you brought in.
  2. Show up at The Washburn Club in Washburn on Friday, April 12th between 5pm and 7pm. There will be an envelope with your name on it and inside will be tickets that you will use to claim your new to you books.
  3. Shop around and pick out the books you want. Bring them to check out and pay with your tickets. You do not need to redeem all your tickets.
  4. Any books left at the end of the night will be used to fill the free little libraries in town.

Although we would love for you to bring in your books early so we can sort them and have them all set up before the event on Friday night you can come that night and bring books to swap. You will just check in and we will hand you tickets at that time.
