This winter, Southgate Library will have it’s very first Books & Clothes Swap! This event is exclusively just for teenagers. Clothing swaps are a growing trend in many cities, where a person invites friends over and they swap clothes and accessories which they no longer wear or use. Teens who visit and use the library have wanted to host a clothing swap for some time, and besides clothes, books, shoes and other accessories will also be accepted for trade. They only ask that items for the swap be brought ahead of time so it can be organized into types of clothes.
“I want to make sure that everyone walks away with a good experience and want to come back to the library.” says Samantha Le Blanc, a staff member of the Southgate Library.
The Books & Clothes Swap will be held December 15, 2012 at the Southgate Library, 6132 66th Avenue in Sacramento. It’s from 1:00pm until 3:00pm during this month’s regular Craft Club meeting. If you’re tired of your old clothes and feeling like changing it up for free then this is the event to be at!
