ANDERSON COUNTY ó The largest book club in America, PaperBackSwap.com recently donated 1,000 books to LaFrance Elementary School. The gift included 1,000 brand new books which will be placed into the teachersí classroom libraries so that students will have direct access to them or given to the students so that they have books to call their own. Overall, the November 2010 program will provide 30,000 books to 30 schools all over the United States. The books will be delivered to the school right after Thanksgiving this year.

PaperBackSwap.com is based in Atlanta. It is a free online book club where members swap books just for the cost of postage. People join PBS by posting on the PaperBackSwap.com website good condition books from their bookshelf that they are willing to share. Two startup credits are given by PBS to start the memberís swapping. Credits are earned by sending out books to other members. Any available paperback or hardcover book may be ordered for one credit, and audio books may be ordered for two credits.

Complete information about the online book club is available at www.paperbackswap.com.
