Friends Re-Launch Online Sales

The Friends of Johnson County Library are pleased to announce that their online sales are back in business, as part of their phased re-opening strategy. The thriving division was temporarily shuttered in adherence with COVID-19 transmission control protocols.

The Friends inventory comprises donated books and materials as well as some weeded items from the Library. They use a multi-listing service that immediately posts their items on 5 top-performing internet sales platforms including eBay, Amazon and AbeBooks.

The Friends’ online sales are a success for the nonprofit group that supports Johnson County Library. “We’ll normally gross about $125,000 from online alone, and send books to countries around the world,” says Friends Operations Manager Shanta Dickerson. “We’re eager to get back to work providing high-quality, low-cost reading material to our customers and members.”

Friends Bookstores and donation acceptance will be phased back into service later this year.
