What happens to library kit that's no longer needed? Do you flog it on ebay
or donate to freecycle? Or does it just get discarded and land in the tip?
I've just been looking through various library supplies catalogues to
purchase everything from book ends, through spine labels to shelving systems
(I'm even looking for nice premises to set it all up in!) and it occured to
me that when I worked in big library systems we often had library equipment
and stationery left over after a refurb or change of system. It ended it up
in a store room never to be seen again.
I'm setting up a library from scratch for a charity and am keen to know if
there is anywhere that deals in secondhand or surplus library supplies.
