Swap Five Event

What a great success for our Swap Five event! We had lots of people contributing pre-loved items and it almost felt like Christmas when discovering hidden gems, still fashionable or at least wearable art clothing and other cool gadgets in the electronics department. All accompanied by free (Koha) yummy food and lots of excitement - this one calls for a repeat for sure!
