Community Hall Boardwalk Villas

Hi there - Does anyone know if you can check out books at the Community Hall? Years ago I know they offered it but not sure if they still do. Thanks!!

yes....although they haven't required us to "check out" like with DVDs.
it works well, as i don't always finish a book, and can bring it back next time.

btw, they also take donated books. i often bring a few extra with us, and leave them for others to enjoy

That is great to know - thank you! And I never thought about donating books - what a good idea.

In all the years I've been at the BW, I never knew you could get books!! I guess I should take my "blinders" off the next time I go to Community Hall!

Hey it's almost time.....F&W!!!!

okw has always had books - but unless they changed the rules - you could not even take them out of the library/lobby area.

so it was not too popular. BWV seems a much better plan.

The "book exchange" at the BWV Community hall seems to have gotten smaller. It is more of a "take one; leave one", i.e. exchange your no longer needed book/paperback for one on the shelf. I'll usually buy a few used paperbacks at my local library (5 for $1) and do the "leave/take" thing. I think the selection has gotten smaller because of more people using Kindles, etc. I do love my kindle fire, but still prefer the feel of a book when poolside. Oh, there are no "check out" rules either. You can go in and take a book....but should return it upon leaving. We used to do htis type of book exchange in my office. Worked out really well.

i've a nook also, but there's nothing like the feel of a "real" book (or the smell of a real library)
