Swapping Books

With temperatures near 60 on Saturday, the atmosphere was perfect for the Lesley Ellis Mystery Book Swap. Many families turned out to select new, mysterious additions for their book shelves. Prior to Saturday, students found new or gently used books at their homes, wrapped them in plain paper, and wrote mysterious clues about why they loved the secret book inside. They dropped the books at school and on Saturday they  joined other mystery hunters and picked some new books to take home and enjoy. Thanks to everyone who participated and donated books.
