Seeing Dots

Book Sale FAQ #8

Why do some books have green dots or yellow dots or special prices?

We have not raised the price on our hardback books since 1999. The vast majority of them are still a great buy at $1.50 each. However, we have started to sticker (with green or yellow dots) some books that the market dictates will support a little extra.  Remember, our purpose is to raise money for library programs.

Book Sale FAQ #9

What kind of accessibility do you provide for disabled people?

Our aisles are measured and tables placed exactly to comply with Fire Marshall requirements for safety. If you've attended a sale, you know that able bodied people have trouble moving through the crowd. If you need a walker or wheelchair, we are happy to accommodate you by offering you a chance to come shop for a short time before we open to the public. Please understand that to access this opportunity you need to contact us first. You can do so by e-mailing us here, or contacting someone at the library. They will get the message to us. However, we are volunteers and do not have phone or message boxes at the library. Your best bet is to e-mail us!

That said, per Fire Marshall rules, we cannot accommodate strollers. At all. Please do not ask. If you've attended a sale, you know that this is not the best environment for children. Please consider carefully whether your child or children are the type that can wait quietly for you to finish shopping. If they are likely to create a disturbance for other patrons, please reconsider bringing them. Our major concern is their safety -- people carrying boxes, bags or piles of books often do not see little ones under their feet.
