COVID-19 Notice

Due to current safety restrictions in Banner Elk, the Book Exchange will not be open until it is determined safe to re-open the Historic Banner Elk School building.  This decision will be made by the Banner Elk Town Council, which follows the state guidelines for public safety in this time of COVID-19.  One of the big issues is the need to clean the Book Exchange and the entire building each time it is used by the public. There is no town personnel available for this required daily cleaning.   

We don't know when we will be able to open our doors to the community, but we will let you know when that date is decided by the town.  The Play and Learn program on Mondays is cancelled until further notice, as they follow the public school calendar.

We want our volunteers and patrons to be safe and to stay well, so wash your hands, wear a mask and be careful!
