NCompass Live: Getting More $$ from Your Book Sales OR Is This Old Book Valuable? - Online 


Cecelia Lawrence, Director of the North Platte Public Library, will show and discuss how libraries can generate additional funds for their book sales through finding rare and valuable books in their donations, even their withdrawn items. We will explore the impact of scarcity, author, edition (how to know if you have a first edition), condition, age, aesthetics, and association on these older books. Once we have this information, she will then show you how to best utilize online resources like to provide a value to the book in hand. And finally, she will discuss pricing of the item, as well as discuss Betterworld Books as an option for additional streams of Book Sale revenues.
