Here at the Global Book Exchange, we are all volunteers, so please be understanding when you come to get books or bring us books. We are not like a full-service bookstore, but we always do our best to help you, and we appreciate your patience and support.


Our Volunteers

The Book Exchange is run solely by volunteers. When you visit, you might find yourself being assisted by one of our “regulars:” Kit, Kim, Lois, Marilyn – or another volunteer. We appreciate assistance from local teachers, students from middle schools and high schools, and other wonderful people who want to take part in what we do. If you have time to join us, come on in!

The Book Exchange is a fun and meaningful community service project. We help local schools and the environment, while helping to educate children all over the world.  When you give your time to The Book Exchange, you can take books for yourself when you’re here.

Please email us if you would like to volunteer your time at The Book Exchange. We would love to have your help!
