Odd Lots Again

We're starting to get some interest in our Odd Lots sale. In response to some questions, here is some more information in form of FAQ's:

1. Do I really have to buy the whole box?

We won't hold you to buying the entire box, but remember, our goal here is to clear out space so we can save more great buys for the Semi Annual Used Book Sale.

2. What is a ballpark price?

The Friends always try our best to be fair in pricing. We ask that you do the same when you view the condition and quantity. Current magazines sell for .25 per in our on-going sale (although some go for .50 if they're a bit nicer). You can use that as a measurement against what you might want to offer. That said, we'd like to remind you that all monies go to support the Reston Regional Library at a time when more funds than ever are needed, so we'd love for you to be generous!

3. Do you really not want my collection of _______(fill in the blank)_________ magazine?

Unless they are vintage-valuable, no thank you. We really just cannot afford the storage. The only exception is that we will accept mint comics in bags (or mint unread comics). We have a market for those and we greatly appreciate their donation!

4. Do you have anything besides magazines?

Yes, in this photo you can see a collection of a teaching program for literature. We have the contents of the majority of 3 of these that were donated. Note that they are for West Virginia.

Also, in the other photo, a classic Mad Magazine awaits your purchase.

5. Why do I have to be a member of FRRL to participate?

We love to provide benefits to our faithful supporters. It's only $15 for a general membership and it gets you in on Friends Night for the fall and spring semi-annual sales! You can join at the same time as your purchase or by using our link here.

If you have more questions or would like to make an appointment to see the magazines, please contact us. Leave a message for Pam at the library by calling 703-689-2700 or send us an e-mail here.
