Bountiful free books bring community crowds

Posted

HONESDALE, PA — SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support) recently celebrated its most successful free book swap in the event’s eight-year history. More than 22,000 books were donated, sorted into multiple categories and made available—at no charge—to hundreds of readers.

Over 12,000 books were rehomed by local readers. Books that were not taken home were shipped to Better World Books to be donated across the globe. 

Many of those in attendance commented that it is one of their favorite events of the year and they look forward to it every fall. The event, coordinated by Jenna Wayne Mauder of NaturEd and SEEDS, promotes sustainability, recycling, literacy and a sense of community. 

The popular event has grown every year and would not be possible without the outstanding support of many dedicated volunteers and community sponsors, including the Wayne County Bar Association, PPL Foundation, Brookfield Energy, Frey-Fetsock Funeral Home, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, Honesdale National Bank, Farm Arts Collective, The Cooperage Project, Platform Industries, Karen and Charles Lutz, Jeanne and Grant Genzlinger and Melissa Bell.
