The Great Book Giveaway …and you’re invited!
• Host: Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning
• Phone: 608-224-5380
• When: Thursday, July 28 at 1:00 PM to Friday, August 12 at 4:30 PM
• Where: Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning, 2109 S. Stoughton Road, Madison, WI 53716
You are invited to visit Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning to select materials for inclusion in your library’s collection at no cost to you.
We are reducing the size of our physical collection as we refocus our mission to emphasize cost effective services and programs that meet the evolving needs of Wisconsin residents.
Authorized representatives of all publicly funded libraries in Wisconsin are invited (Monday - Friday) to 2109 South Stoughton Road from Thursday, July 28th through Friday, August 12 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Materials being distributed include books, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, LP records, hard-bound serials, and more. Libraries are encouraged to come prepared to transfer items personally. Small collections may be shipped through the South Central Delivery Service, but we do not want to overburden delivery with major shipments.
Please let us know by Tuesday, July 26 if you plan to send representatives. Please contact Patricia Stutz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-224-5380 to schedule an appointment.
The content of our collection can be viewed in WISCAT. Our collection is heavily weighted to non-fiction subjects and much of the collection is more than 5 years old. Feel free to print a pick list to make the most of your time here.
Because our collection is considered state property, certain terms and conditions apply to dispersal. Items selected from our collection cannot be resold through library book sales, nor can they be offered to single non-profit organizations, private libraries or private citizens. Details on appropriate use of materials selected from the collection will be forwarded to you upon your acceptance of our invitation.
Our collection includes an extensive collection of SAMS Photofacts. If any library is interested in acquiring this collection please let us know immediately.
If you have questions about the process, please contact Martha Berninger, Director, Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning, 608-224-6161.
We look forward to seeing you!
