Better World Books Project Update
The staff of Adult Services continues to carefully re-evaluate books returned by Better World Books. As of August 2, 2013, approximately 23% of the shipment was left to re-evaluate with over 1,600 nonfiction books already added to the collection or waiting to be processed. Items not returned to the library’s collection will go to the Friends for their book sales.
The library anticipates the completion of the Better World Books project by or near the next board meeting on Tuesday, August 13.
Friends of the Library Summer Book Sale
The August 22-26 book sale will include some of the library’s collection items from the Better World Books shipment. Don’t miss this opportunity to support the Friends of The Urbana Free Library. All items not purchased at the summer book sale will be transferred to the Recycle Center at the University of Illinois.
