Join us for our Full Moon Swaps at the Canmore Public Library! The next Full Moon Swap is coming up on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023. See below for more information!

June 3rd - Strawberry Moon Swap

Celebrate the Strawberry Moon with a community swap of all things summery!

The full moon in June is also referred to as the Strawberry Moon. It gets this name from the wild strawberries that ripen during early summer, ready to be gathered.

With that in mind, our Strawberry Full Moon Swap will be a community swap of all things summery! Think summer clothing, hats, sneakers and sandals. Items to be enjoyed outdoors such as yard games, scooters, frisbees and more. Summer items can include things for your garden, beach towels, water toys, bug spray, sunblock, hiking gear, etc. The possibilities are endless at the June Full Moon Swap!

Our Full Moon Swaps will be held monthly, on or around the full moon. Each swap will have a theme connected to the name of the full moon that month, for example the Flower Moon or the Wolf Moon. We encourage community members to bring gently used items they no longer need or want to the CPL the day of the swap as a donation. Items will be displayed on tables and are available for anyone to take home with them, so please be sure the items you bring are items you are prepared to give away. Everything is FREE and everyone is welcome! You do not need to donate items in order to attend or take items home. 

We hope these swaps will encourage community connection and help keep usable items from piling up in a landfill! Any items leftover at the end of the swap will be donated to a charity of our choice.   See you then!

May's full moon is also known as the Flower Moon. Therefore, our May Full Moon Swap will be of all things floral and gardening (think flowers, plants, seeds, flower pots, gardening items, clothes / toys / housewares / miscellaneous items with flowers etc). So gather your unwanted gently used items in the flower family and join us in celebrating the Flower Moon at our next Full Moon Swap!
