The Lawton Public Library will host a Book Swap for children from 11:00am to 2:00pm this Saturday, August 29th 2020 (08-29-20) at the main library, located at 110 SW Fourth Street in downtown Lawton.

During the Book Swap, Children can bring their like-new/gently used books to the Lawton Public Library and choose a new book. The used books should have no writing, torn pages or ripped covers. Books should be for newborn children through 15 years old. Children can take home the same number of books they bring in. According to Kristin Herr, library director, "The Book Swap is a great time to freshen up a child’s library."

“A new school year has started, so what better time to add some new books to your child’s personal library,” Herr said. “The Book Swap allows children to bring in the books they have already read and swap them with new books to discover. This also allows them to make room for their new books on their bookshelves.” The Lawton Public Library is open from 9:00am to 8:00pm Monday through Thursday, 9:00am to 6:00pm Friday and 9:00am. to 5:00pm on Saturday.

Face masks are mandatory for visitation. For more information about upcoming library events, call the Lawton Public Library at (580)-581-3450 or visit the official site.
