Breaking Branch News

This is the first in a new initiative designed to keep membership better informed

On the weekend of May 6-9, 2021, the Atlanta branch was selling books to the public in person once again! Together with our North Fulton and Cobb colleagues, we were vendors at the monthly Scott’s Antique Market. Spearheaded by the indefatigable Sharon Bevis-Hoover, some 26 volunteers put in many hours to prepare books, set up and break down the booth, and to SELL Books. That is what we do! 

Here are the results of the sale:

Revenue $1,989

Expenses $482

Net proceeds $1,507

Net proceeds percentage was better than what we have traditionally seen at the Mall event.

We learned a lot and have much to consider, but we are back in the business of public book sales!

Stay tuned for future sales endeavors!
