Sunday 21 July & Sunday 1 September
Free drop in


Need a refresh to your bookshelf? Want some new picture books for your children? Ready for a new novel? 

Swap & Share Books returns (by popular demand!). Come in to Front Room and swap or give away your pre-loved books. These Swap & Shares are all about re-using and passing on books that you are ready to share with others to take home.

Nothing to donate? Totally fine, just pop in and pick up what you’d like to read. 

Non-fiction, fiction, baby & children/young peoples books all welcomed.

We’ll also be running a drop-in mini Comic Book Club through the day and story times for young children. Plus, an opportunity to join our book club! Sign up on the day and pick up your free copy of the book if you feel like joining in.

All books are free and happy to go to new homes (please bring your own bag).

Sorting your book collection out? Want to clear some space?

We want to encourage reuse and recycle so drop off your books at Baltic's Hello Desk ahead of the Swap & Share and we’ll collect them.
