Hello Roeper Families!
We hope everyone has been enjoying the summer! It’s hard to believe it is time to start planning for the upcoming school year 😉 Alas, that time is near and we have the final details for the Roeper Textbook Swap!
Dates & Times:
Thursday, August 10th, 4pm-7pm [EARLY BIRD SHOPPING!]
Friday, August 11th, 7am-10am [EARLY BIRD SHOPPING!] & 10am-6pm [open to anyone]
Location: Roeper Birmingham Campus in the Gym
*Please know that this is the first year we are doing this and we have decided to try doing it this first time with the spirit of the Roeper community in mind; we are trusting that families gave what they could and now, likewise, families will take just what they need. We ask when you are shopping that you take advantage of these free to you books, but remember there are other Roeper families that will also be hoping to do the same! We truly hope everyone who comes out to “shop” will find something they need, but we cannot make any guarantees about what will be available when you come and we have more of some textbooks then others. We will of course be reassessing after this first year and will be open to constructive feedback. We look forward to this growing bigger and better in the years to come.
*All textbooks have been donated by Roeper families and these books are available free to new Roeper homes. No money will be exchanged at the swap.
*The EARLY BIRD SHOPPING times are designated for families that have already donated used textbooks to come and shop first. If you donated textbooks and did not receive an email with information about Early Bird Shopping please just email me and we will look into it!
*We have made an inventory of all of the textbooks that were donated this year so you can get an idea of what is available at the swap. There is a designation if we have a low, moderate or high supply of each particular textbook. Individual paperback English books are not listed, but we have MANY titles to choose from.

*We highly recommend you look at the book list on the Roeper website or on MBS (after August 1st) before you come so you know what books you are looking for. Please know not all ISBN numbers will match exactly because sometimes the used books are previous editions. Many teachers are accommodating of previous editions being used in their classrooms, but if you have any specific concerns, please check with individual teachers.
*The Book Swap is taking place before the free shipping dates with MBS and with plenty of time to find any books that cannot be acquired at the swap before school starts.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact either one of us. We look forward to a great swap!
