Fitchburg Public Schools Director of Enrollment and Family Engagement, Eva Kelly, hopes families in the school system take advantage of the upcoming breakfast and book swap at South Street Elementary School on Saturday.

FITCHBURG — Book lovers in the Public Schools, make sure to mark your calendars.

The snow date is Feb. 1.

The program is sponsored by the Fitchburg Public Schools Title I and McKinney Vento Grant.

The book swap allows for families to swap up to six used books for new or used ones.
