3-2-1 GO GO GO

Yep! Today is Monday, and the HUGE, FANTASTIC, SEMI-ANNUAL USED BOOK SALE starts

WEDNESDAY!

Friends Night will begin at 5 p.m. The drill, for those who are new to this event, is that you come early enough to have your membership status checked. We'll either give you a ticket to go in at 5 or offer you the opportunity to renew or purchase a membership at that time. If the latter, then you'll get a ticket.

Please, no strollers or backpacks of any kind.

Please, be civil (you know your momma taught you how to behave in public. Pretend she's watching!)

We have moved some categories because we will not have any children's or Young Adult fiction -- so ask if you can't find something that you easily located in the past.

Please, DO visit our Specials Room. Lots of good stuff in there!

We take cash and checks. NO CREDIT CARDS. There is an ATM in the lobby, but we make no claims as to its working status. We have NO control over that.

Don't miss the opportunity to purchase a fabulous Friends T-Shirt, Mouse-Pad, Lanyard or Coffee Cup -- or all of the above! All purchases help sustain the efforts of our library staff to spread literacy throughout our community.

My sister, husband, and I have been patrons and Friends for many years. We're not renewing this year. In fact, we're not going to attend this sale. We normally spend in excess of $150 per day, and usuqally come twice during the sale.

Why won't we be there? Because the ban on backpacks isn't enough. Until you ban dealers from bringing in those huge plastic bins that block the walkways and until you ban them from snatching everything then carelessly throwing books in piles all over the place, then this sale really isn't reader friendly.

And the most ironic part of all of this - we're retired booksellers ourselves.
