Book swaps

Lymm currently has two community book swap locations, both based in retired phone kiosks:

  • Sandy lane book swap

On the corner of Sandy lane and Hopefield road (link opens map) This book swap has it's own Facebook page (link opens in Facebook) and a dedicated community sorting the books.

The original phone box / book swap suffered an arson attack in August 2019, but through community funding was replaced in February 2021 with the current classic red phone box.
