SWAP: The Oberlin Book Coop
About My Library
SWAP accepts books of any type - both textbooks and miscellaneous books - in exchange for points based on their value. Points can also be earned by volunteering with us, on a per-hour basis.

We use LibraryThing to catalog our books and their point value!
About Me
SWAP is a democratic, student-run organization founded on the belief that education is a human right. We aim to serve the students of Oberlin College and Conservatory, particularly those students facing economic challenges.

Recognizing that the cost of textbooks can be prohibitively expensive and that support from Oberlin College and Conservatory is often inadequate to meet students’ educational needs, SWAP aims to make ownership of textbooks more feasible.

To this end, SWAP facilitates a money-free book exchange between students. We do this by allowing students to earn books both through their labor and through the exchange of other books. Finally, the organization strives to create an environment welcoming to all students and to be actively anti-oppressive in its service, management, and structure. We seek a cooperative environment and are continually in the process of growing and developing to best meet the needs of the students of Oberlin College and Conservatory.
