    Are these books all paid for with taxpayer dollars and resold for a fraction of the cost paid…

    You are being ridiculous. It’s not free to store and maintain out of date library books. When circulation of titles declines to the point that the books wouldn’t be missed, it’s the responsible thing to do to get rid of them. And what better way to get rid of them than to sell/give them to people who will use them? Also, I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the concept of depreciation. Doesn’t sound like you’re aware.

    is the heat getting to you today? sorry….jeez, man. i do wonder though if they send some of the less-checked out books to other libraries that may not have the resources to obtain new.

    I thought these book sales were usually books in not so great shape?

    No, the heat is not getting to me. Know-nothing know-it-alls, are though.

    At the Upper Arlington booksale last year, the books were in perfect shape.

    Some were dated, but most were near new.

    I can understand them getting rid of the records, but they should consider shopping those out. I’ve picked up some collectible records (still sealed Beatle’s White album & a couple of rare concert records) at these booksales in the past.

    I fail to see how your first comment was a “lil fun.” We can carry this out through DMs if you like.

    maybe the libraries are not allowed to be reselling things for real money?

    where is our fighting librarian when you need her?!? ;)

    There are also times that a library will order multiple copies of a hot new title and then need to thin that supply later as the popularity dies down and newer titles need that space.

    I need to get over there to see if their set of Samual Morrison’s 15 volume set US NAVAL OPERATIONS DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR is on sale. I read the whole series four years ago…and I was probably the ONLY person to have read the series in the last 10 years.

    If I had $$$ to spare, I’d go Friday or Saturday….
    I have plans on Sunday, so I doubt I’ll be able to make it.
