We are pleased to announce that THE GREAT NEPAL BOOK SWAP will be visiting the Barracks this year for the first and second weekends.

The Great Nepal Book Swap is happening again at Summer at the Beach. Do you want to clear out old books? Find new books? Help children in Nepal buy books for themselves? We can help with all of that!

Clearing out old books

Now till Friday 6th July - please drop them at 98 Cambridge Road (down the little track off the road)

Weekend of 30th June/1st July - please drop at Waterbeach Barracks in the Community Room,[just left after the front gates, in the same building as the museum]

Weekends of 7-8th July, 14-15th July - drop at Waterbeach Barracks in the Community Room,[just left after the front gates, in the same building as the museum]

Find new books

Come to Summer at the Beach and browse - take as many books as you’d like - we always have something for everyone!

Donate money to a Nepalese orphanage for their book fund

We will be taking donations - give as much as you think the books are worth or as much as you can afford. With this fundraiser, we raised enough for every child in the orphanage to buy a book a month, we cover school books and we also provide bookcases!

Thank you! Your neglected books can find a lease of life - and remainders will be given to local schools, a hostel and Emmaus. No book will be wasted!
