Take a Book, Trade a Book

In 2017, Southeast Regional Library began the process of taking bookcases out to 12 First Nations communities within the region to set up Take a Book, Trade a Book sites. The bookcases were then filled with both new and donated books, all in very good to excellent condition, and since their inception, several communities have set up additional bookcases to accommodate the initiative's growing popularity.

The Take a Book, Trade a Book locations create a no-strings-attached library environment in each of these First Nations communities.  The goal is to support family literacy by getting reading materials into the homes of First Nations families on reserve.

If you see a book you would like to read, take it home. If you have a book you are done with, trade it for another one. No need to return books.

All Take a Book, Trade a Book sites are now in service unless indicated below due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
