The permanent sale shelves were switched from Hard Back Fiction and Audiobooks on the last day of the sale back to normal. I started switching them back but was "let go" or made redundant, if you like the English term. A little thing like putting all the mass market paperback shelves in crooked.
Kathy marked the shelves so we won't have that problem again. She is also the queen of the alphabet and I consider myself to be alphabetically challenged. We have our fiction in order and by category- regular, mystery, sci-fi and romance.
Children and Non-fiction are pretty much by size. We added a shelf of magazines since they seen to be selling well.
We have good volunteers restocking regularly. Melinda is Monday and Wednesday and Betty is Friday.
On-line is doing well but we have almost caught up with donations and the weeded books. librarians weed their collections for different reasons, such as, not circulating, condition, newer information available, so if you are in the area and want to clean out your shelves come see us. Go to the Welcome Desk and they will call us.We have a nice hand truck and flatbed cart to help bring them in.
The dust has hardly settled but we already have about 10 boxes going to storage. The sale usually has between 400- 600 boxes - in categories and graded.
