DUNKIRK, Md. – MAEVE Northern Calvert, a non-profit service organization for local moms, hosted its second annual Community Book Swap event on April 2, 2023 at Dunkirk District Park. Participants browsed through a large selection of gently-used books collected by MAEVE members. Many participants also brought additional books to donate. The free event also included children’s crafts and activities. Books left over from the event were donated by MAEVE Northern Calvert to local organizations and libraries. 

“It was a bright, beautiful day for the MAEVE Book Swap and definitely an honor to be a part of it again this year. MAEVE Northern Calvert is proud of the community service projects we do that focus on strengthening families and supporting ‘all who mother,’” said Sandra Golden president of MAEVE Northern Calvert.
