Vintage Books Subcommittee

The Vintage Books Subcommittee sells donated used books that are more valuable than our regular bargain-basement book sale prices, due to age, first edition status, signatures of authors, or other collectible characteristics. This committee of volunteers researches, evaluates, and prices these books for either internet sales or MLFOL book sales. Volunteers must be computer literate with access to a computer (library computers are available as is one-on-one training).
