BOOK SALE FAQ #5


Did anyone notice the FAQ's skipped a number? Oops...well, here it is.

What are you doing this time to make the sale more user-friendly?

We like to think our sale is always user-friendly, but we admit that the word has gotten out about what a great sale this is, so it is a bit crowded at times. To address that, we have a 3rd cashier station and we have people who count and total your purchase while you stand in line. We've made the tables more reader friendly by not stacking boxes underneath them, and by lining up the titles so they're easier for you to read. We've put new and safer shelving in the Specials Room, and we continue to recruit the friendliest and most helpful volunteers around. And, in order to give our patrons every opportunity to see every book, we'll continue our practice of constant restocking and we'll also practice the "Big Flip" sometime on Friday or Saturday.

This year we also have some great 'extras' for sale. Be sure to take a look at the Friends of Reston Regional Library logo items. We have beautiful dark green T-shirts, mouse pads (you'll
 never have to search for the blog address or e-mail address again), and lanyards for holding your name tag or security badge. Show your support for Reston Regional Library by picking up a few of these items!  Prices are:

FRRL T-Shirt:               $10 members/staff; $12 non-members
Mouse Pad:                     $4 members/staff; $5 non-members
Lanyards:                        $2 members/staff; $3 non-members

There is a way to get them free. Join the Friends of the Reston Regional Library at an increased giving level, and you can receive one or more of these items. The break-out is:

Good Friend ($50 level)         Lanyard
Best Friend ($100 level)        Lanyard and Mousepad
Special Friend ($250 level)   Lanyard, Mousepad and T-Shirt

If you joined or renewed at a level of $50 or above since January 1, 2009, we are going to try to catch you on Friends Night (April 23) to give you your premium when you check-in. However, if we miss you, please ask us about it!
