    7. Textbook exchange

      If your school is in need of textbooks for your classroom then this is the place to come. Teachers can post listings of unwanted books they are willing to swap. If your school is nearby you can get in touch to obtain the text sets and exchange them with other reading material that you no longer need. You can also add a wish list of class textbooks that you are looking for so that schools can respond to your appeal when the material becomes available.
