Do you have books that are sitting on your shelf collecting dust?  Every month Salem Elementary does a book exchange.  Students are encouraged to bring a book from home that they no longer want.  In return they can exchange the book for a different book that they have not read or wish to read again.  These books are either new or used and it’s a great way to help students discover new books and encourage reading.
