BOOK SALE POLICY!!!!!!!

Our mission is to raise funds for the Bethlehem Area Public Library and to provide affordable books for the public.

 

In order to provide equal access for all and for safety reasons, the following policy is in effect beginning January 1, 2010:

 

Scanners (scanning the title or ISBN) are not permitted during the first hour of the sale. Book choices must be made one book at a time. If a book is rejected, it must be replaced immediately. You may not remove multiple books from a shelf, table or display and then make your choices. Books chosen for purchase may be placed in a container and stored out of the way of aisles, exits, and elevators until you are ready to pay for them.

 

Anyone violating this policy will be given one warning, and then be required to leave. There will be no exceptions.
