- A book of high value in the re-sale market
- A book that might not get the exposure in a Semi-Annual Used book sale that will allow it to be sold
- A book that is so cool/unique/interesting/wow that we cannot imagine withholding it from the general public for sale. In other words, a niche book.
As an organization dedicated to raising funds to supplement our library and FCPL library programs, our fiduciary responsibility requires that as we identify donated books we must place them in the best 'market' for that book. For the loyal Friends who come to our on-site sales, don't worry! We save lots and lots of books for you. But the majority of you want to go home with numerous books for the $50 you spend at the book sale -- not just one really unique $50 book -- unless that unique one is JUST the one you've been looking for!
So, we encourage all of you to check our Amazon Reston Friends site regularly to see what's new. If you find something you want, and you are a current Friends member, we will meet you at the library to sell you the book, saving you the postage. Just e-mail us at RestonFriends@gmail.com
