Paperback Exchange


We have a new and improved Paperback Exchange in the Circulation!

Located in the DVD area, the exchange has been reorganized with new selections added each week. Just grab what you want to read and when finished, you may return it in our book return.

No library card is needed, and anyone may use this service!

You may donate your own picks by dropping them off at the Circulation desk. If we don’t add them to the exchange, they will go to our Friends of the Grandview Library Book & AV Sales.

Enjoy the Paperback Exchange!

One of America’s best libraries—again!


Once again, Library Journal has named the Grandview Heights Public Library one of America’s best public libraries!
