book swapGreat Teen Book Swaps
FREE book! Just swap us a review. Here's how it works: the Teen Librarian will bring out several books (new, old, and ones that have not been published yet) and allow teens the chance to browse through them for one that you'd like to keep.  You will, in turn, swap us a review of the book by the end of the month. For ages 12-18.
