In addition to children from our neighborhood bringing and swapping books at our September 15th event, no child leaves empty handed: EPX has received a summer book grant from Scholastic, Inc., the mega-corp that produces many of the award winning books for kids, including some books about a young wizard with a lightening bolt scar.

We’re also happy to welcome back Buckles the Clown who will read during the swap. After story time, and in addition to swapping books and eating a free healthy snack, kids will be able to take home a free new book! (Quantities are limited and titles are subject to change. Books are given on a first come first served basis.)

Previously read books, for the swap, are being provided by our pals at the Friends of the Free Libray of Philadelphia. See you Saturday, September 15th from 11a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at St. Nick’s School Hall. Excelsior!
