Starting The Lending Library

As many of you know from a previous post our family is starting a lending library. Of course it will probably be a year or more before I actually have families coming to borrow. I have alot of work ahead of me. I guess one of the reasons I considered this huge project is that the way the economy is going and government issues I feel anything could happen in the future. No funds to continue to have libraries open, government rewriting history, etc. So today we started this endeavor. First a feed store in town shut down and today they were having a warehouse sale. We purchased a floor to ceiling bookcase for $15.00. This book case will stay in the tv room and house alot of our personal books that we won't loan out.

Next we were off to a friend's house to pick up three free book cases. They are downsizing to a much smaller house and had lots of stuff for free. Two bookshelves were placed in the "official" library and the third in the kitchen to house gluten-free products and cookbooks. So we are well underway on this great adventure. In May I will be attending the state home school convention and hope to pick up some great deals at the big used book sale.
