Ready, steady, GO!

March 31, 2016

Be at Dannevirke library on 1st April 2016 to grab some bargains!  Day one of our April book sale begins at 9am. Nothing over 50 cents.

Why do we get rid of books?  Well, we purchase about 5,000 new items per year so we have to make room for them.

How do we choose what goes?  Items removed from the collection are chosen using strict criteria and are usually those no longer being read, in poor condition, books we may have multiple copies of, or unwanted donations.

Why is the sale always at Dannevirke Library?   There are several reasons such as ; volume of stock (lack of space for sale tables at other branches); efficiencies of workflow (initially the items are all transferred to Dannevirke Library for assessment by the District and Senior Librarians, so it doesn’t make sense spending time/money sending them back) ; staff resourcing (Dannevirke Library is our main branch and has six staff; our other branches generally have only one staff member for much of the time), etc.

Enjoy the bargains!
