(and here’s a peek at the new auction catalog.)
What an incredible day we’ve had! All the books made it to the Coliseum from the warehouse, but it turns out our dock plate wasn’t long enough to drive the forklift onto the trailer to fetch them. Did I mention that it’s a LOT of books? We did finally come up with a work-around solution, and all the books are unloaded and boxes are being unpacked, probably as you read this.
Look for a segment about us on Tuesday on WDTN “Living Dayton” at lunchtime. Given that it’s election day, we’re bringing some books to share that have interesting political twists.
Also, we think we might have heard that we’ll be featured on the front of the lifestyle section of Thursday’s Dayton Daily News.
Though the Book Fair won’t officially start until Thursday morning, for the fantastic volunteers that make it all happen, it’s already underway. (People actually take vactionas from their jobs to help us with this.)
We’ll be having a silent auction again this year, which will finish at 6 p.m. on Saturday night. There will be paper catalogs available at the sale, or you can peruse it at this link: auctioncatalog16
Also, you can still pre-order wristbands for will-call. It’s easiest for us if you do so through the website, but if you don’t have that option you can still order by phone– call us on our cell 937.781.6561 to do so.
