Join us for our August Full Moon Swap at the Canmore Public Library!
August's full Sturgeon Moon will be the last supermoon of the year! NASA explains that "a super moon occurs when the Moon’s orbit is closest to Earth at the same time the Moon is full." They appear larger and brighter than regular full moons because of this closeness.
With that in mind, our August Full Moon Swap will once again be a community swap of all things! This month's swap will be open to all kinds of gently used items - clothing, housewares, art, sporting goods, and everything in between.
With back to school just around the corner, perhaps you have unwanted school supplies such as pens and pencils, backpacks, lunch bags, pencil cases, and notebooks that you would like to pass on to someone else.
So gather your gently used items and join us in celebrating the Supermoon at our August Full Moon Swap!
The August Full Moon Swap will take place outside at the Elevation Place Plaza, weather permitting. In the case of inclement weather, the swap will be moved inside the Library.
Full Moon Swap - August Super Moon
Saturday August 20th, 2022
10am - 2 pm
Elevation Place Plaza
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!
