Inexpensive Vinyl Laminate to Cover Book Club Paperbacks

Library Processing had a backlog of Flex-Armor Vinyl Laminate rolls that we will be selling in the NERC. If you cover book club paperbacks in the library, you may be interested in them. There are 20 rolls, which are listed on The Library Store website for $33.95 each and we will sell them for $5.00 a roll.


Through the month of October, we will keep them behind the desk for librarian purchase and sell the rest to the public after this time.


The rolls will be sold first come-first serve to librarian shoppers in the NERC.

Dalite 84" X 84" Screen

We have a brand new Dalite 84 X 84 screen (price $139) that is available to a good home. Please email Mary Beth if you are interested.
