Black Friday Book Swap in support of East Lothian Foodbank
This Black Friday, we don't want to encourage you to buy more books, we'd like you to swap them! Join us on Friday, 25th November, from 11am to 7pm at Night Owl Books East Linton, to meet other readers, and swap your books!
How many books can I swap?
Please bring up to three books that you'd like to swap - when you arrive at Night Owl please make your way to the till and we'll give you a special sticker to mark your books as available for swapping.
Do I have to swap my books directly with another reader?
Feel free to stay and chat with other readers - we'll be offering free tea and coffee to anyone who brings their own reusable cup!
In a hurry? Once you've received your sticker you can leave your books on our central table, and swap them for any that catch your eye there! After the book swap, we'll be selling any books that are left over in support of East Lothian Foodbank on our pre-loved books trolley.
What can I donate to support East Lothian Foodbank?
Not everyone looks forward to Christmas, and this year the soaring cost of living means more people will struggle to feed themselves and their families, and need our support.
East Lothian Foodbank wants to make sure that everyone who receives one of their food parcels in the run up to Christmas will also receive a Jingle Bag, ensuring they can celebrate Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
We know it’s a huge ask at a time when costs are soaring, but if you’re able to give any of the following items from East Lothian Foodbank's Jingle Bag shopping list we’d be extremely grateful:
- potatoes (tinned or packet mash)
- carrots (tinned)
- sweetcorn (tinned)
- peas (tinned)
- gravy (packet)
- bread sauce (packet)
- stuffing (packet/box)
- Christmas pudding
- mince pies
- chocolates/selection pack
- Christmas savoury snacks
Please remember everything must be non-perishable as bags will be given out from 1st December to be kept for Christmas Day.
Thank you so much in advance for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at our Book Swap!
