Circulating Books with Funny Money

Found In: book swap, money skills, reading activities, programs & events, school library

I have a surefire way to circulate books. Our library media center purchases students’ used paperbacks for the cover price with fake funny money. After a week of buying, the books are organized by genre and displayed for sale to those who possess the fake funny money. Hint: when advertising this event, make sure that you state you will “buy” age-appropriate books only, or you will get little brothers’ or sisters’ discards. The kids love it, moms love the cleaner room, and kids get new books to read.
