We have been blown away with donations these last few days, I think that people decided that it was never going to stop showering - raining and they might as well get their stuff out. My favorite label on the boxes this week was -garage shit. Did peek in to make sure it wasn't accurately labeled. Just a short time ago, all the boxes were off the floor and then wham! we are filled and heading to alternate storage. I can tell you that there will be masses of LPs at the next sale. Lots of classic and 40s-50s also. a couple boxes of gaming magazines showed up also. I told the donor that they would go to good homes.
In addition, boxes of great childens, history, and art have shown up in our room. We are pricing and boxing as fast as we can because we know that Shute Park Library will be sending over 10,000 items in the next few months. Wow!
We do like to take off the mylar covers, and also make sure the books are not falling apart - we will glue them back together, if we can. Also, a nice clean on the kids books is also called for.
Linda took home this weekend our new anti-smell machine, I'm anxious to hear and smell how it performed.
