Hooray for Independent Bookstores and other people's money

I just spent $350 of Friends of the Library money at an independent bookstore--they were having a pre-inventory sale. The pleasure of walking along the shelves and saying--"I'll have that one, and that one, and that one...." And how nice that it wasn't at a large chain bookstore. I followed this up by trading in some of the better books donated to our book sale at an adjacent used bookstore, for ten more books. It makes the sometimes miserable effort of running library booksales worth it. My dream for the library, though, is solar panels. Only $9,000 more to go before the library can stop spending money on electricity that could be used for books...
