New Shop Now Open to Raise Funds for Trinity Lighthouse Church Library

Trinity Lighthouse Church Library

Volunteers from the Trinity Lighthouse Church Library in Royersford, Pennsylvania, have opened a new fundraiser shop to support their purchase of basic library supplies. They’ve got limited room on their shelves, so they’ve begun to weed out some of the extra copies in their collection.

Anyone can contribute to this fundraiser shop by designating Trinity Lighthouse Church Library as the chosen non-profit organization in their Individual Raising Funds for a Non-Profit Organization contract (available from our Consigning with Us page).

Handling Ex-Library Books

It’s a common practice for libraries to remove items from their collection for resale. In most cases, these items have been marked by the library in some way before shelving, including covering them in a clear plastic cover, stamping the pages, attaching security strips, and labeling their spines with shelving codes.

In order to avoid the risk of damage, we do not attempt to remove any of these markings. An ex-library book is identified as such in the condition section of its product page.

In some cases, the library itself will prepare their weeded items for sale by stripping out the book pockets or covering the writing. If in the process, the book is damaged, its condition will have to be downgraded from “Good” to “Acceptable.” If at all possible, it’s best not to modify the books in any way before placing them for sale.
