Onekama Elementary Hosts Book Exchange

Something fishy was going on at Onekama Elementary School on Friday, March 8.  Students were in the school library, loading up on new books, with no return date necessary.

The event was the school’s annual Book Exchange, which takes place each year during March is Reading Month. This year’s theme for the month is “Hooked on Reading,” and it involves a month of activities designed to get students engaged in and excited about reading.

For the Book Exchange, students were asked to bring in used books in good condition, and they had the opportunity to trade them for books brought in by others. On Friday, 353 books were exchanged, and students eagerly showed off their new treasures.

“I have a new Magic School Bus book now,” said second grader Cheryl Showalter, “and I can’t wait to read it!
