West Public Library

Paperback Book Exchange

Bring paperbacks that you have read to the library and exchange them for books you would like to read. As a way to share community resources, the library will serve as a central location to exchange used paperback books. These books are not to be checked out in a customary manner and do not need to be returned unless you would like to bring them back to exchange for another set of books. Five books may be exchanged at a time. The library asks that people be mindful of the books they bring to exchange. Yellowed, tattered, and dated books cannot be accepted. If books for exchange cannot be found, you may keep the books to exchange at a later date or receive a receipt to use at a later date. Exchanges can be made any time the library is open.
