The Board of the Friends voted to ban the use of electronic scanning devices at their book sales. The devices are often used by for-profit dealers to mine our sale stock for the most valuable titles and our Friends want our sales to benefit as many of our regular library patrons as possible.
Book sale proceeds are used for programming expenses, refreshments, and for staff and volunteer recognition events.
