Del Mar Heights School seeks books for exchange

The Del Mar Heights School Used Book Exchange is collecting new and gently used books for the students’ book exchange.

From Nov. 12-14, students and the community bring in books they no longer read in exchange for credits. The next week, Nov. 17-20, students can use their credits to pick out “new” books.

The goal is to get books into the hands of all students while helping to improve the environment by giving items for re-use. People do not have to attend this school, nor live in the neighborhood, to participate. Organizers are looking for gently used adult and children’s hardcover and paperback books (fifth- and sixth-grade books are especially needed). Books can be dropped off at the front office (13555 Boquita Drive,, Del Mar, 92014).

Any proceeds will be used to add books to classrooms and the school library. Any unused books will be donated to local children’s charities.
