MNMF / MIAC-LOA Library OnSite Booksale
The last onsite booksale was held November 15-16,2014. This booksale of nearly 10,000 items generated over $12,000 in 10 hours over the two days, an amazing feat given that the roads were treacherous from the heavy snow that fell the night of the 15th!
The LOA Library thanks the 2014 Booksale Volunteers (51 in total!!!) for their support in mounting a successful sale. Special thanks are extended to Linda Muzio and Joan Lamarque for making the 2014 sale a great success!
The Meem Auditorium and the LOA Library Reading Room were converted into sales showrooms. Special exhibition cases and displays were set up. Special street signage and banners were ordered.
Approximately 45% of the 230 boxes of donated books priced and sorted for the onsite LOA Library Booksale sold over these two days.
Mounting the 2014 onsite booksale took months of preparation. The 2014 booksale was staffed by 51 volunteers over the two days the sale was held.
Behind the scenes are a few dedicated volunteers sorting and pricing those 230 boxes and getting them ready for sale.
