Two fun events are in store for members of our community.  This Saturday is the popular annual book swap at the City of Kennesaw and on Feb 4, the fun and entertaining Valentine’s Dance takes place.

Book Swap – SAT JANUARY 14!

Kennesaw Parks & Recreation will host its annual Book Swap even at the new Recreation Center at Adams Park on Saturday, January 14, from 8 to 11 a.m.  Area residents interested in participating can drop off gently used hardcover or paperback books, music CDs, DVD movies and vinyl records January 12 & 13 from Noon to 8 p.m. and receive a ticket redeemable for the same number of items during “open swap” time on January 14. Books must have their front and back covers intact and be in good condition. CDs, DVDs and vinyl records must be in their original cases and fully operable. Magazines, software, VHS or cassette tapes, adult content, unauthorized or illegal material will not be accepted.

Items will be organized into the following categories: Fiction, Children, Teen, Non-Fiction, DVDs and CDs/Vinyl. This swap is completely free; items cannot be purchased with money. Any remaining items left at the end of the swap will be donated.
Kennesaw Parks & Recreation seeks willing hearts and helping hands to assist with set-up, execution and breakdown of event activities. Assistance is needed during drop off and at the event with receiving, sorting, counting and bagging items. Volunteers must have the ability to bend, stoop, stand and lift up to 20lbs. Those interested are invited to explore the list of volunteer opportunities and sign-up for a volunteer shift on the registration website, CivicRec. Please select “Volunteer Opportunities” to see a full list of volunteer opportunities for the annual Book Swap.
