The 2021 Great Grange DVD & Book Exchange
We all have them, books and movies that we’ve read or watched once and since then, they’ve been acting as the perfect dust collector. Perhaps you have movies that you might have received, but are still in the package? (I’m guilty) If so, you’re in luck because it is time once again for The Great Grange DVD and Book Exchange. This year’s Book Exchange is on Saturday, March 27 from 9 AM to 2 PM at The Grange.
How The DVD & Book Exchange Works:
If you have a stack of books and/or DVDs or old puzzles you don’t want anymore, just put them in boxes you don’t want to keep and bring them to The Grange. There are several drop-off dates and times where you can bring your boxes of books and DVDs and new this year puzzles.
Drop off Dates:
Monday – Thursday, March 22 – 25 from 9 AM – 8 PM
Please make sure that you drop off all of your books during this time. The staff will not accept books on the day of the event.
There are a few items that we cannot accept. If you have old textbooks, encyclopedias, VHS tapes, or outdated how-to books, we cannot accept these items.
The Exchange at The Grange
After you’ve dropped off your boxes of books and DVDs, you’ve probably got some shelf space. Come back to The Grange on Saturday, March 27, from 9 AM to 2 PM for the big event. Come early because this event is first-come, first-served with no limit to the number of books you can take, and we’ve got many readers here in The Meadows. You’ll see the line forming before 9 am. If you don’t have books to donate and you want to add to your collection, don’t worry. You don’t have to donate to participate. Make it easier on yourself by bringing a bag or a box to lug home your new books!
Book Exchange COVID Social Distancing Instructions
Due to the popular event, the staff will allow the first 60 people in The Grange to rummage through books for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, we will ask all 60 people to leave and take the next 60 people. If you didn’t quite find what you were looking for and want to continue to browse, you can collect another ticket on your way out and can reenter as many times as you would like.
When you arrive, please stop by The Grange front doors, and you will be given a ticket with a timeslot on it. Please collect a ticket for EACH person that is going inside.
The Grange staff will start handing out tickets at 8:30. So get there early to get your spot.
Here is an example:
9:00-9:20 – 60 people
9:25-9:45 – 60 people
9:50-10:10 – 60 people
10:15-10:35 – 60 people
10:40-11:00 – 60 people
And so on…
This process will be in place until there are less than 60 people in line. Once we have reached less than 60 people waiting, the 20-minute limit will end, and it will be one person in and one person out if necessary until 2 pm.
The 20-minute time limit is in place to allow a “fair” chance for people to look through the books. Again, you can reenter as many times as you would like.
