Creative arts & design professional practicum (cadpp), program enquiry.

  • Comments This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

The ACICIS Creative Arts and Design Professional Practicum (CADPP) will again by offered in-country from January 2023. Launched in 2017, the program exposes students to the vibrancy of contemporary Indonesian arts and cultural production, combining academic elements with hands-on practical creative production experience.

Running from early January to mid-February each year, the CADPP is a six-week intensive academic and vocational study program in Indonesia for undergraduate and postgraduate Australian and international students. The program includes a two-week intensive Indonesian language study and industry-led seminars at an Indonesian partner university, followed by a four-week supervised industry placement.

The practicum placement will involve students collaborating with Indonesian peers and creative practitioners to produce work including, but not limited to: short films, animations, sound and video art, websites, online installations, blogs and social media apps.

The CADPP is designed for students who have no existing Indonesian language skills. Candidates with existing language skills are also welcome. All industry placements provide an English-language working environment.

A fabulous experience to really meet some of Australia’s closest neighbours, explore their art scene, while meeting and working with amazing and inspiring artists.  ACICIS Past Participant

The two main aims of the CADPP are to:

  • Provide students with a practical learning experience with a Host Organisation (or individual artist, artist collective or art/design studio) in an Indonesian creative arts and design workplace environment; and
  • To enhance bilateral understanding through the creation of new partnerships between Australian and Indonesian counterparts, and to serve as a medium for the exchange of ideas in the field of creative arts and design.

The structure of the six-week program is as follows:

  • Two weeks of intensive Indonesian language classes at an Indonesian partner university, designed to give participants basic Indonesian language capacity;
  • A series of seminars and fieldtrips led by experts and practitioners from Indonesian creative arts and design organisations;

Followed by

  • A four-week supervised practicum placement designed to give participants an English-speaking professional experience within an Indonesian or international organisation (or with an individual practitioner, artist collective or art/design studio) operating within Indonesia’s creative industries.


ACICIS’ programs in Indonesia operate under the direction of the ACICIS Resident Director, Dr Adrian Budiman.

In addition, an Academic Program Officer (APO) is assigned for the duration of the CADPP to oversee all aspects of the program, including the supervision of its academic content.

Elly Kent was the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022 CADPP Academic Program Officer. Elly Kent is a translator, writer, artist and has obtained a PhD in art theory and practice at the ANU School of Art. She was the recipient of a Prime Minister’s Australia-Asia Postgraduate Award in 2012, and the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art’s emerging artist award in the same year.  Read more about Elly here .

Some important points to note

  • Applicants should be aware that they are applying for the program, not a specific placement. Participants must therefore accept that they may not be placed in their desired choice. In addition, all ACICIS placements with business organisations depend entirely on the goodwill and preparedness of such organisations to host participants. Such organisations retain the right to withdraw from the program or vary the number of participants they host at any stage. Therefore, while acting in good faith in preparing participants for placements, ACICIS  cannot   guarantee  any specific internship site and participants must accept this need for flexibility as a condition of participation in the Creative Arts and Design Professional Practicum.
  • The visa that participants enter Indonesia on is not a working visa. Participants are strictly prohibited from undertaking any form of paid work during their time on the CADPP. ACICIS takes this matter very seriously and will take disciplinary measures against any student found undertaking paid work of any kind throughout the program.
  • Participants are advised to take a laptop with them to Indonesia, as in most cases this will help them greatly in their work placements. In some work placements it is essential.
  • Please be advised that Indonesian Universities have a dress code which will be enforced by ACICIS. T-shirts and thongs are not appropriate.
  • Orientation is compulsory for all CADPP participants. If you cannot attend orientation then you will, unfortunately, not be able to participate in the program.

Library Book Sales: What They Are & How to Find Them

If you’ve never heard of library book sales – or you’re just looking for more information on them – you’ve come to the right place! They’re a perfect place for readers to buy books on a budget. Here’s everything I’ve learned about library sales, including a great resource for finding local ones in your area (and tips on making the most out of them)!

As a former bookseller, I’ve found library book sales to be one of the best methods for sourcing books at super low prices! A majority of my personal book collection is made up of secondhand books from library sales, too. It’s so much fun to fill up a bag of books while supporting your local library.

What are library book sales?

Library sales are events hosted by local libraries where they sell used and vintage books (either ex-library and donated by patrons) at very low prices.

These sales help raise money for library foundations that keep the library running and support reading and literacy programs.

(Of course, if you have extra books you no longer want, be sure to donate them to your local library for their next book sale! This is another great way to support libraries.)

Book sales often have a large variety of books – new, used, ex-library, and vintage – in different genres. Some may also sell CDs, DVDs, puzzles, etc. in addition to books.

From my experience over the years, I’ve found most books are priced within the $0.50 – $3 range. And some of the books are even in like-new condition!

Some libraries will even let you fill an entire bag with books for a set price, which decreases the price-per-book even more.

Here are more great places to find secondhand books for cheap !

What are ex-library books?

Ex-library books are former library books that have been taken out of circulation. Sometimes, libraries will sell these at book sales (along with donated books).

They may still have marks, stickers, and/or cover protectors, but sometimes these can be removed. Either way, they’re still definitely readable and are often sold at super marked-down prices!

How to Find Library Book Sales In Your Area

The best place to find out where and when library book sales are being held near you is BookSaleFinder.com . Just click on the state where you live, and you’ll see a list of library sales sorted by date and location.

Often, you can also see more details about the sale. For example: the sale’s hours, what types of media they are selling, what percentage of the books are donated vs. ex-library, how big the sale is, etc.

Some libraries may not be listed on this site. You can also look up the online event calendars for any libraries you know are in your area (if they have a website).

You can also just call your local public library and ask!

When are library book sales held?

Depending on where you live, there may be multiple book sales for you to check out each year. Some larger libraries even have four or five book sales every year!

I’ve found book sales are most common in the summer and fall, but they can definitely occur year-round, depending on your area or county.

Sales are usually held on weekends to make it easier for everyone to attend – but not always.

Helpful Tips to Come Prepared

Here are a few insider tips about library sales:

  • Some library sales will only accept cash and/or checks, so be sure to come prepared!
  • I recommend bringing at least one large canvas or tote bag to carry your books more easily (if you plan to buy a lot).
  • Check if the library is doing a bulk-buy deal, where you can buy a certain amount of books for a set price or lower price.
  • If you want first pick of the books before the library sale starts, see if you can volunteer to help with the sale!
  • Some libraries have a Friends of the Library program where you’ll get extra perks or early viewing for sales if you join.

How to Find the Best Books at Library Sales

If you’re a bookseller or book collector, you may want to check out certain sections of the library sale first.

  • Usually, vintage books will be separated into another section or room, so I like to check that first. Those are in high demand, so they get bought up more quickly.
  • Some sales may separate the nicer, like-new books into a separate section as well. If you care about your books looking new versus used, be sure to check that out! But be aware that these prices may be higher.
  • Library sales are a great place to find books for your kids or for classrooms (if you’re a teacher, etc.)! Children’s books are often priced even lower than other books, and are usually separated into their own section. (They’re sometimes combined with Young Adult books).

Library book sales are so much fun, and they help support your local library. I highly recommend checking them out.

I hope these tips help grow your home library or book collection (without breaking the bank)! 🙂

How to Prepare for Library Book Sales

By Joe Waynick

Library book sales are one of the best sources for buying used books at incredibly low prices and selling them for much higher prices.

In fact, a used book buyer can buy books for 25c to $1 that sell for $5 - $300 or more. Sounds incredible doesn't it? But it's true!

The VNSA usually displays over half a million books and up to 3,000 people who sell used books online travel from all over the United Sates to buy them. Yet I manage to take home 300 – 500 books every year worth an average of $15 each, in about four hours.

However, to maximize the number of profitable books you buy at library book sales depends on how well prepared you are for the event.

Properly preparing for a mega sale helps you buy hundreds of books worth thousands of dollars for you to sell online. I even take home a rare book or two.

You can sell used library books online for fantastic profits because most Internet booksellers turn their noses up at them.

However, sticking to titles with an Amazon sales ranking under 50,000 is a great idea to make extra money from overlooked books in a matter of days or weeks. That's how lucrative online bookselling can be!

Don't Be Late!

Your first order of business is to arrive early . Library book sales are normally well-attended by used book buyers, especially the mega sales. Some booksellers camp out overnight. Yikes!

I usually arrive at the VNSA book sale no later than 3am the day of the event. The doors open at 7am so I have to cool my heels until then. Literally. February temperatures in Phoenix that early in the morning drop below 45 degrees.

Dress appropriately for the weather. In cooler months and climates, dress warmly, particularly if you show up extra early to the library sale and must wait several hours.

A heavy coat, long pants, and gloves are all good ideas. Bring a thermos with a piping hot drink, a few sandwiches, and your favorite snacks.

For warmer months and climates, wear a loose fitting short sleeve shirt or blouse.

Also wear short pants and comfortable walking shoes.

Women should not wear heels or pumps to library booksales because you’ll be on your feet for several hours. There's nothing like sore aching feet to kill the fun when buying new books for resale.

Bring a thermos with your favorite ice cold non-alcoholic beverage. Again, a few sandwiches and snacks come in handy.

Instead, use a fanny pack or a small compact bag that straps snugly across your body. A backpack will also do, and it works equally as well for men.

Bring the Right Equipment

Regardless of the weather, bring a comfortable folding chair, and maybe even a blanket to throw across your legs if it’s cold.

Also, bring your own sturdy shopping cart to haul your used library books around because most likely the carts provided by the library book sale organizers (if any) will be gone by the time you get in the door. Even if carts are available, you’ll save time wrestling with other buyers vying for a cart if you have your own.

You can find an excellent professional quality shopping cart from my bookstore for online sellers by clicking this link: Shopping Cart .

However, experienced book scouters are careful not to overlook those little rolling library book carts that may hold special sales items that have been deeply discounted. They're usually not on the site map.

Often, library book sales will have a map of the floor showing where different categories of books can be found. When the doors open, calmly walk to the area where you want to start buying first.

Of course, don’t forget your barcode wireless scanners (with a backup battery) and your rare book list. If you leave those behind it kind of hampers your entire effort.

Take a partner along to make life easier if you can. That way you can focus on pulling the most promising books, and handing them to your partner for scanning. Both of you stay focused and get a lot more done.

When you’re done with your library book search , pay for your purchases with a check or credit card. Don’t bring cash! The last thing in the world you want to do is accidentally drop your money on the floor and lose it forever. I’ve seen it happen.

Have Lots of Fun

Above all, relax and enjoy yourself! Library book sales are a fun, profitable way to spend a morning. They’re a totally different experience than scouting at your local public library.

You’ll get to see more books in one place than you’ve probably seen your entire life. Families can have a blast figuring out dozens of ways of how kids can make money selling used books.

Selling your Library

We purchase entire libraries and significant books all over the world. Organizing collection is not a problem.

books library selling

Over the last 28 years we have annually shipped around 5000 books to exhibit on our stand at Maastricht Fine Art Fair. The experience has taught us efficient and economical ways of bulk-shipping, and this has facilitated the acquisition of libraries in Amsterdam, Baltimore, Basel, Düsseldorf, Geneva, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Santa Monica.

If you are considering selling your library and would like a valuation, the easiest thing to do is to send us photographs.  There is no need to spend time making a list of titles or ISBN numbers.  All we need are clear photos of your shelves, with all the books facing up and the titles /authors clearly readable. If your library is especially large, it would be helpful if you could also take a picture of the room where it is located. Please then send us your photos using WeTransfer , and not by regular email.

We buy libraries, in whole or in part, from collectors, curators and dealers across the world.

We Buy Withdrawn Library Books

Helping to deal with withdrawn library books.

We are aware that public library services usually have withdrawn books that are no longer of use and disposing of these used books in a timely, economic and environmentally efficient manner can present a challenge to library managers.  We hope that we are able to help with these problems.

We know that it is important for libraries to:

  • Sell your books for the best price to ensure value for money, particularly in these times of spending constraint on the public sector.  We pay the best prices for books and we pay when we collect the books.  Some services only pay if and when the book sells.  We think that our offer is better and secures more money for the books to the library service and our book buying process is simple and is also fully auditable.
  • Have a regular book collection since space is often limited particularly at the branch libraries.  Revival Books have our own drivers and vans and can come and collect your used library books from any of your library locations, generally within a week of you notifying us that you a collection.
  • Have boxes provided.  Revival Books will provide flat packed boxes (we re-use these as many times as we can J) so you don’t have to provide your own boxes.
  • Ensure that the books are being handled accordingly in an environmentally responsible manner

We work with over 20 Public Library Services across the UK as well as a number of University Libraries and College Libraries.  We also work with many Charities and collect and process thousands of books each week.

We seek to find a second life for as many of the books as possible and we sell these in retail outlets or on the Internet.  Working with a paper recycling partner we recycle any books we do not use and these books are pulped for on-going use.

We will take ALL books.  We understand that you need a solution to the whole problem and therefore we do not specify that we will only take certain types of books.   Unfortunately we cannot ascribe a value to journals or magazines but we can take them away free of charge as part of a book collection.  We also take audio books, CD’s, computer games and DVD’s.

We will collect your books from individual libraries if this is what you prefer or we can collect from a single collection point. We have designated days each week when we are in particular areas so we would try and tag your collections on to these to minimise fuel consumption. If you have a large volume we can make arrangement for specific one off collections.   Payment is normally made by cheque upon collection and a receipt is required and should be given to the driver.

If you are interested in further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

books library selling

7 steps to selling books online

Step 1: decide what type of books you want to sell.

  • Wholesale: Buy in bulk for lower prices online or at bookstore closings. You can also procure new books in larger quantities from distributors or publishers. You may not have total control over what you get, but you can get more books at wholesale costs.
  • Local sources: Find used books by browsing local library book sales, used book stores, yard sales, and thrift shops. You may also discover collectible books at estate sales.
  • Auctions: Seek out auctions, estate sales, or farm sales selling used or collectible books.

Step 2: Create your ecommerce bookstore

Step 3: figure out how you’ll fulfill orders.

  • Merchant Fulfilled Network (MFN) – You store inventory, pack, and ship books independently.
  • Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) – You ship books to an Amazon Fulfillment Center, and they do the rest for you. FBA includes storage, packing, shipping, customer service, and returns. Using FBA to ship your products is also the easiest way to get the Prime badge for most offers. Many Amazon customers look for products with the Prime badge because it represents fast, free shipping.

Step 4: Set your book pricing

  • What condition is the book in?
  • Is the book new or used?
  • Is the book a collectible (such as a first edition)?

You can automatically manage pricing on Amazon

  • The Automated Pricing Tool lets you automatically adjust prices for your available inventory based on your pricing rules and preferences.
  • The Match Low Price feature helps you match the lowest price with the click of a button

Step 5: List books for sale

  • Type the book's ISBN code into Amazon's search bar. If the book was printed before 1970, enter the title manually.
  • Once on the product listing page, click the "Sell on Amazon" button.
  • Enter the SKU. This can be an SKU of your choice, or if you leave it blank, Amazon will generate one for you.
  • Select your price. To match the lowest price, simply click that button.
  • Enter the total quantity. The default is one unit.
  • Choose the condition. It's vital to be 100% honest about the quality of each book.
  • Select your fulfillment channel (MFN or FBA).

Learn the lingo:

Isbn, sku, and asin, isbn: international standard book number, sku: stock keeping unit, asin: amazon standard identification number, step 6: boost book sales with marketing and promotion, promote your online book business on social media, pay attention to reviews.

  • Be honest about item condition
  • Ship orders on time
  • Respond to customer inquiries quickly
  • If issues arise, solve them as soon as possible

Step 7: Pack and ship book orders

  • Use multiple packing materials. Appropriate packaging could involve a combination of bags, Kraft paper, or bubble wrap.
  • Protect book corners, edges, and dust jackets.
  • When shipping more than one book, consider wrapping each one individually or using single book boxes for protection. For multiple books, you can place pieces of flat cardboard between each book.
  • Books should fit snugly in the padded envelope or box, so there’s little wiggle room.

5 tips for selling books in the Amazon store

1. choose a selling plan to get started.

  • Individual selling plan is a pay-as-you-go plan that provides access to basic listing and order management tools. You can create listings one at a time by matching products to existing pages or creating new pages in the Amazon catalog. You don't pay fees to Amazon unless an item sells, so it’s a good starting point for entrepreneurs new to online selling.
  • Professional selling plan gives you access to advanced selling tools for a monthly subscription fee. Unlike the individual selling plan, you pay a flat monthly fee of $39.00 regardless of whether you list or sell anything (instead of a per-item fee—although both plans pay referral fees on items sold). The Professional selling plan gives you access to inventory tools to upload batch files and manage your orders through feeds and reports. These tools are especially beneficial to medium- to large businesses.

2. Research which genres and categories sell best

3. be 100% honest about the condition of your books, 4. choose your fulfillment option.

  • Merchant Fulfilled Network ( MFN ) – You store inventory, pack, and ship books independently.
  • Create your shipment through your Amazon Seller Central account. See the step-by-step process to send or replenish inventory to Amazon .
  • Pack up your books to ship to an Amazon Fulfillment Center. For more information, see small parcel delivery to Amazon , packaging and prep requirements , and product size tiers.
  • Label your packages. Be sure to check shipment label requirements .
  • If the books are brand new, see requirements for FBA products sold as new .
  • See how Amazon receives and stores your inventory .

How Amazon receives your inventory

  • Manage orders from your seller account.
  • Pack books securely.
  • Get your packing slip ready and printed. Amazon will generate a PDF product and shipment label (see print a packing slip ).
  • Send your package using the carrier of your choice. Note you can use Amazon's discounted shipping to send to a fulfillment center.
  • Confirm the order (see how to confirm a shipment ).

Buy Shipping services

5. monitor sales performance.

How to find Used Books

Finding used books.

Book Seller Academy Tools Software

Library Sales 

Libraries are a great resource for finding used items and books. As public institutions, they often receive book donations from the community, which can result in a surplus of inventory. Some libraries have their own bookstores, which are typically run by the Friends of the Library (FOL), a non-profit organization that promotes membership, organizes sales, and provides valuable resources for the community. The money they raise from book sales is typically used to support community programs and purchase necessary supplies. So, if you're looking for great deals on used books, don't overlook your local library!

To find library book sales in your area, you can check websites such as www.booksalelibrary.com and www.booksalefinder.com. These websites offer comprehensive listings of book sales across the country. It's a good idea to regularly check these websites and add upcoming sales to your calendar so you don't miss out on any great deals.

Estate sales, estate sales are another great option. estate sales occur when someone passes away, and their family hires a professional company to sell their possessions. books are often sold at a low price, and you can find great deals on rare and valuable titles. to find estate sales in your area, we recommend using estatesales.net, which is a database that provides information on upcoming sales, including the location, date, and time. you can also sign up for email alerts, so you never miss a sale. keeping track of book sale events to help you keep track of upcoming sales, we recommend creating a calendar in which monthly sales are automatically repeated. you can use a variety of calendar apps, such as google calendar, fantastical 2, or icloud calendar, to set up reminders and alerts for upcoming events. by keeping track of library book sales, you can save money on books and support your local community at the same time. whether you're visiting a library sale or an estate sale, it's important to bring cash and arrive early to get the best deals. don't be afraid to haggle, as many sellers are willing to negotiate on the price. with these tips, you can build your book collection at an affordable price., tips to help you get ready for a sale:.

If you're planning on attending a library book sale, here are some tips to help you make the most of your experience:

  • Arrive 30 minutes to 1 hour early, depending on the popularity of the sale. This will give you the best chance of finding great books before they're picked over.
  • Bring your scanner, a rechargeable battery, and charging cables just in case. This will allow you to scan books quickly and efficiently, and ensure that you don't run out of battery life.
  • Bring a bag, banker's box, or crate to carry books. You'll want to be able to carry your purchases easily, so come prepared with a sturdy container.
  • If possible, indicate how the books are organized and which sections you would like to see first. This will help you navigate the sale quickly and efficiently, and find the books you're most interested in.
  • Connect to the Library’s wireless network, if it is available. Cell phone service is occasionally unreliable inside buildings, so take advantage of the available Wi-Fi to scan books and search for pricing information.
  • Scan everything you can and ensure that you check type-ins and picture scans. Don't leave great books behind just because they don't have a barcode. Take the time to scan them or manually enter the information once you have time.
  • Occasionally libraries receive large donations from estates, containing books that are not generally available. Listen to library announcements or ask a librarian for more information. You never know what treasures you might find!
  • Make sure to return if there is a half-price or bag sale scheduled. Often, books are left behind by booksellers who do not want to pay the full price. Since the price is lower during these sales, it may be worthwhile to return and pick up books that you passed on earlier.

How to find Sales

There are several online resources available to help you find used book sales in your local area. Booksalelibrary.com is a great site to search for libraries and organizations that sell used books. Booksalefinder.com is also a useful website that lists sales for each region in the US, as well as ongoing sales. Additionally, booksalesfound.com includes most of the sales listed on book sale finder, but also includes some local events and rummage sales that are not advertised. If you cannot find a specific book sale on these sites, using Google can also be helpful. Finally, consider following libraries and bookstores on Facebook to keep track of sales and announcements. With these resources, you will be able to stay informed about upcoming sales and find great deals on used books in your area.

To stay on top of upcoming book sales, it's important to update your schedule regularly and check the websites we mentioned at least once a week. Don't assume that every sale will be announced in advance, as many occur unannounced. If you have a repeating calendar, be sure to verify the date of each event to avoid any confusion.

When planning which sales to attend, take the time to research each one and determine which will offer the best selection for your needs. If you plan on visiting multiple sales in a single day, make sure to keep track of your time and plan out when to arrive and leave each one.

It's also a good idea to keep an eye out for the same booksellers at each sale. By getting a feel for their schedule and staying ahead of the game, you can maintain a competitive advantage and be more likely to find the books you're looking for.

Working with Librarians and Volunteers

When attending library book sales, it's important to remember that librarians and volunteers are providing a valuable service to the community. they work hard to raise funds for the library and provide important programs for the public. as a result, it's important to treat them with respect and be as helpful as possible. if the opportunity arises, don't be afraid to mention that you buy and sell books. establishing a friendly relationship can be beneficial for both you and the library. you may even be able to get a sneak peek at new books or receive advice on the best times to attend sales. remember that building positive relationships with librarians and volunteers can go a long way in helping you find great books and make the most of your library book sale experience., etiquette  .

During a busy sale, it's important to remember to be helpful, respectful, and kind. If you can, offer to help the volunteers carry or organize boxes. Remember, it's not all about competition with other sellers, so try to establish relationships based on mutual respect.

Be mindful of the public, who may be visiting the sale to donate or find new reading material. It's important to be polite and patient, even when it's crowded. Use phrases like "pardon me" or "excuse me" when passing through the sale.

Organize your scanning process as much as possible to help the volunteers and reduce the time spent reshelving items. Always be respectful of the library's books as they belong to the library and should be treated with care.

Showing respect and courtesy to everyone at the sale, including volunteers, the public, and other sellers, can go a long way in building positive relationships.


There is no need to be intimidated by the competition out in the field. It is unnecessary to be aggressive or antagonistic. Booksellers tend to be friendly people who are passionate about working for themselves. You will see competing booksellers come and go. The learning curve for bookselling is quite steep and turnover is high. At the end of the day, every "competitor" is a potential ally. It is fine to discuss business-related topics with other sellers (avoid disclosing your sources). You can learn a lot from other people, and sharing a few business tips doesn't hurt.

What is Online Arbitrage?

Online arbitrage can be a profitable business model for experienced booksellers who are familiar with the intricacies of the trade. To start, it is important to have a solid understanding of how books sell and the risks involved in purchasing higher-priced books. It is also essential to use reliable software tools that can filter results based on important criteria such as book rank, MF and FBA prices, number of competing offers, and publication date.

Keep in mind that this business model requires more startup capital compared to other models. Rather than buying books for a few cents or a dollar, you'll be spending $10 or more per book. Therefore, it is important to thoroughly research the booksellers you are purchasing from to ensure they are reputable and provide a quality product. If the book condition does not match the description, it could lead to negative reviews and ultimately harm your business.

Despite the risks, online arbitrage has proven to be a profitable model for many businesses. With the right knowledge, tools, and research, you can take advantage of the "Prime Bump" and potentially earn a high-profit margin.  When searching for products to buy inline consider the following:

  • Used MF price
  • Numbers of Competing Offers
  • Publication Date
  • Seller Reputation

Before you begin Online Arbitrage:

  • You should be aware of seasonal trends and Keepa data.
  • Due to the much higher COGS, you should keep a record of every cost. 
  • Make a list of trusted booksellers
  • Be sure to monitor ROI. (Return on investment)

Use a Calendar to your Advantage

Organizing your sourcing with a calendar is an effective way to stay on top of your game. Plan your routes weekly and take note of the best locations to visit. This allows you to maximize your time and resources while minimizing unnecessary travel. Make it a habit to communicate with the librarians and volunteers, and ask when they plan to stock more books for sale. This will give you a better understanding of when to visit each location. Be sure to add these dates to your calendar to keep track of your schedule. By doing so, you can have a clearer picture of where you need to be and when. Whether you prefer to use Google Calendar, Fantastical 2, or Slack, you can take advantage of these tools to help you schedule your sourcing activities more efficiently.

  • Plan weekly routes. As you track your sourcing, you will find the best places to visit. Knowing the best times to visit a certain location will help you decide when to visit next.
  • Ask the employees and volunteers when they will stock more books for sale. Ongoing book sales have a stocking schedule so you should know when to be there. Put that information on a calendar, and you'll have an exact idea of when to visit each location.

The feeling is mutual! ♥ Read our reviews. ♥

I have had great working relationships with the entire ThriftBooks team including account managers, logistics, accounting & everyone in between. We trust ThriftBooks 100% and feel that we have generally had very closely aligned goals. It has been a pleasure to be a part of such a massive recycling operation that truly has benefited people around the globe and helped save our planet from a lot of excess waste. I have had the pleasure to see a number of your warehouses/processing facilities over the years and I have always been impressed at TB's growth and ability to stay the leader in the industry for so many years. I am proud to be a partner to TB and have been since the beginning. Broker- Washington
We have been using ThriftBooks for our used books for over two years and are very happy. Pickups are reliable and on time and payment is fast and easy with their direct deposit program. ThriftBooks keeps us stocked with pallets and gaylords and makes the whole process stress-free. Thrift Store- California
My experience working with ThriftBooks over the last 10 years has been nothing short of amazing. They go out of their way to make sure I am taken care of. Communication is always clear and timely. Trucks usually show up as scheduled. If there's going to be a delay then they let me know right away. Payment is always made promptly. Not having to worry about many of the logistical details provides great peace of mind for someone like myself running a small business with many different components to juggle. ThriftBooks consistency over the years has been a major stress reducer for me. Everybody at ThriftBooks is always professional and friendly. Broker- California
ThriftBooks helped us solve a difficult problem: The disposal of books and other materials no longer suitable for our public library collection. Before our partnership with ThriftBooks, we worked with our Friends of the Library groups to sell books at annual book sales. While these books sales were a lot of fun, they were a lot of work and didn't bring in a lot of money. Most books were sold for an average of 10 to 25 cents each. We were not able to capture the full value for items such as first editions. Through ThriftBooks, we are clearly receiving much closer to the full price for our rare and valuable discarded items. It is very important to us that ThriftBooks is able to recycle much of what they are unable to sell. I have found ThriftBooks to be conscientious, trustworthy and responsive. I heartily recommend their services to all libraries. Library- Northwest
We used ThriftBooks for a few years already and are very satisfied with the services we received and also the incomes generated from the sales of those materials. Our loading dock was overflowed with weeded materials after our month-long closure of the physical locations. Staff from ThriftBooks worked tirelessly to schedule pickups from limited trucking companies so that materials can be shipped out ASAP for us to regain the control of much needed space. Library- Northeast
Becoming a ThriftBooks partner was hands down one of the best business decisions we made in 2021. The top-notch client care and logistical services they offer is solid. What struck us instantly was the speed at which they not only receive / ready our product for sale but how quickly they actually sell it! A clear testament to their stellar name recognition in the bookselling marketplace. We couldn't be happier calling ourselves a member of the ThriftBooks family and look forward to many more years of mutual success to come. Bookseller- New York
I just wanted to take a moment and testify to how great I enjoy working with ThriftBooks as a buyer of used books. As a busy salvage manager with tons on my plate it is such a relief to have such a reliable and consistent partner as ThriftBooks. They always pay on time and pick up when scheduled which makes my warehouses happy and my life so much easier. Their team is such a pleasure to work with. They are responsive to my needs (even my last minute requests) and they are wonderful people as well. We have partnered together for my four years in salvage and I hope to continue this relationship for many years to come. Thrift Store- Virginia

Library Distribution: How to Sell Nonfiction Books, eBooks, and Audiobooks to Libraries

Library Distribution: How to Sell Nonfiction Books, eBooks, and Audiobooks to Libraries

Library buyers are especially interested in unique topics that aren’t heavily covered or previously covered at all, so if your book focuses on an uncommon topic, your chances of getting acquired are higher than average.

Libraries also scrutinize books and expect to see top-quality production and editing, an index for heavily referenced books, and require an ISBN and barcode. Some also require a Library of Congress Control Number and/or a Catalog in Print record, although these aren’t as essential as they once were since most libraries are acquiring books based on demand and promotion instead of browsing Library of Congress catalogs.

Also essential, make sure your book has reviews on Amazon—as many as possible—since this shows librarians your book is popular. And there is a good chance they are checking on Amazon too. Goodreads is another source of reviews that librarians can check, so ask readers to write reviews there as well.

Most libraries won’t acquire spiral bound books without the title on the spine. They also avoid workbooks. Anything meant to be written in isn’t a good fit for a library.

These are the most common ways to market your books to libraries:

  • Advertise in the publications librarians read.
  • Get your book reviewed by publications read by librarians.
  • Exhibit at library acquisition events.
  • Participate in collaborative marketing programs through publisher’s groups or by teaming up with other authors and publishers and place ads in publications.
  • Conduct mail campaigns and send sell sheets and/or postcards directly to librarians.
  • Get media attention for your book to drive public attention and interest. Librarians are people too and they’re always on the lookout for books that are gaining popularity.

Read on for links and resources to help you accelerate success in getting your book acquired by libraries.

FIRST, Find Out if Your Book is Currently Carried in Any Libraries!

Use the World Cat website to find out if your book is being carried by libraries, and if so, which libraries. Type your book title in the search bar on this page and it will show you results.

Here is a screenshot for my book, The Nonfiction Book Publishing Plan :

Notice it shows two editions in 96 libraries. I can then scroll down to see all libraries where the book is carried.

Further down the page I can see that World Cat features reviews of my book from Goodreads:

Why is this information useful?

It’s not always easy to know for sure how well your library marketing campaigns are performing, so checking this free database provides an easy way for you to monitor results.

You can also leverage this information in your marketing campaigns. For example, if you have a new book coming out and your previous book is available in libraries, contact those libraries and remind them know they are already carrying your previous book and let them know your new book is available. Another strategy is to let other libraries know your book is currently being carried in 50, 100 or 1,000 libraries, which makes an excellent selling point!

Hang on to the World Cat link and check it periodically, especially after you’ve done any kind of library marketing to see if your efforts are producing results.

Side Note: World Cat also offers search tools for genealogists .

Editorial Review Sources

Librarians commonly acquire books based on editorial reviews seen in industry publications. Following are the publications they follow most.

Kirkus is a reputable editorial review service that is also indie author friendly. For $450, you can submit your book for review. Select reviews are featured in its print publication as well. Traditionally published books are eligible to submit for editorial review at no charge.

Little Free Library

Re-selling Little Free Library Books?

By Megan Hanson

books library selling

It’s not a worldwide conspiracy or even a very smart local business. But in a half-dozen or so communities we know of, Little Libraries have been cleared of their contents and the violation of trust can affect us all. Like kids collecting returnable soda bottles a generation ago, a couple in one city has occasionally cleaned out several Little Libraries in the hope of scoring some easy money. A homeless fellow needed pocket change and took books 10 miles each day to the used bookstore. Maybe your Library has been among the victims. We could respond by installing lights and automatic alarms but that just doesn’t seem consistent with the character of this friendly enterprise.

Steward Terry Weiss of Corvallis, OR had the entire contents of her Library removed multiple times over a period of several months. In response, she put up a sign on the Little Library, stamped each book to indicate it was from a Little Free Library and approached local bookstores to explain her situation. Here is what she had to say:

“I did close the library for a week while we were away (normally I have  a neighbor keep it up for me) and put up a sign saying that I was not going to stop providing books for the kids in the neighborhood, and won’t let one bad apple spoil it for all. I opened the library on Saturday, and so far  – it’s now Wednesday – no stolen books. The sign may well have done it. I’ve been so pleased about the response of local bookstores and neighbors and friends. We now have a good supply of books, and credit at a local used book store – which will be spent on the favorite chapter books that the 8 – 10 year olds like. We have been given a very nice supply of little kids books as well. So, we’re in business and fully intend to stay that way!

“I have found a camera that can be concealed in a tree – first I have to make sure it’s not more than 30 feet away – the flash doesn’t show, even at night. It’s for hunters to photograph places where their prey might come. It takes both night and day photos, and is motion sensitive, so it will only take photos when it has been triggered. I think it won’t be easily visible, so shouldn’t be a problem for our “regular” customers. I can set it for a wide choice of time increments also.

“Perhaps you could tell other people who have been hit by miscreants about these cameras. I got mine in the hunting department of a local store and it was $99. Which is significantly less than the amount of money I’ve spent on books that have been taken. It requires AA batteries and a camera memory chip, so very doable. I wouldn’t consider for a moment putting the camera on the library – totally outside the spirit and it’s the spirit that counts. We love our library and so do so many others around here. I’m so glad our regular customers can once again find books to read and love. Reading real books is far from obsolete around here, I can tell you that. ”

Half Price Books Isn’t Buying It

Half Price Books stores in Wisconsin have stepped up and instructed their employees not to purchase books taken from Little Free Libraries. In fact, it was their goodwill that inspired us to create the message “Always a Gift; Never for Sale.” Remember, there are printable book labels available on the  Just For Stewards  page of our website, and you may  purchase a rubber stamp  that can be used thousands of times to mark each book in your Library as “Always a Gift; Never For Sale.”

Half Price Books has asked us for a sign to put up at the book purchasing counter in all of their Wisconsin branches (hopefully this will spread to all national branches soon!). Here are some first drafts we’re working on:  (Note: these are  not  approved yet. Can you think of some other messages or better wording?)

Half Price Books Fully Supports Little Free Libraries

We support libraries, big and small. That’s why we do not purchase books taken from Little Free Libraries. In fact, we like to reward the customers who give to Little Libraries instead of just taking from them.  For that reason, we offer special discounts to official Little Free Library stewards and donate books several times per year.

Do You Know Someone Trying To Sell Us Books From Little Free Libraries?

Help us spread the word: good bookstores support libraries, big and small .  That’s why we do not purchase books taken from Little Free Libraries. In fact, we like to reward the customers who give to Little Libraries instead of just taking from them. We offer special discounts to official Little Free Library stewards who buy books from us.

Let us know what you think; we would love to hear from you.

Sign Suggestions for Your Library

If you want to put up a sign to discourage Mr. or Miss Sticky Fingers, here is some wording that has been successful in the past:

  • Generosity Zone –  This Little Free Library lives on the trust and generosity of little children and adults. We love the idea of sharing books with each other; giving and returning books. Each time someone takes books in order to sell them, it hurts our neighborhood. And each time someone gives a good book, it helps. Thanks!
  • Book Thieves?  Before you take all these books/Know that we will be taking looks/at you and wondering why/you would ever want to make us cry/So take these books if you must/But know you’ve stolen all our trust/And we would paint your toenails puce/or cover your head with lots of orange juice/(if we could)/But we would rather not/So please pitch in and give a book/Or a crocodile will eat you…just like Captain Hook!/ Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock…
  • Dear Mr. or Ms. Book Taker  – Please don’t take our books away just so you can get money. It hurts our feelings. We love them for reading and learning, and you can, too! Most book sellers we know do not want to buy from people who remove the books from Little Free Libraries. It’s kind of like stealing from everybody.
  • You Can’t Steal a Free Book  – Some people think they can, so they stop by, load up with good books and try to re-sell them. If you know or see someone in the self-serving “book biz,” please talk to them. Tell them many, many people are watching this Library because we love it.

Finally, if you’re having trouble with people abusing your Little Library,  contact us ! We are here to support you and will help however we can.

Seattle’s Gage Academy of Art moving into Amazon building

On a recent morning, students filed into Seattle’s Gage Academy of Art and ascended a set of creaky stairs to the light-filled drawing room, where tall windows looked out on the brick peaks of Capitol Hill mansions. The students lined up sheets of paper, pencils and rulers on paint-splattered tables, like the tens of thousands of other novices, hobbyists and aspiring artists who’ve flocked to Gage’s Capitol Hill headquarters over the years. 

Not for much longer: After 20 years, Gage is leaving its Capitol Hill home. In the summer of 2024, the nearly 35-year-old nonprofit art school is moving to South Lake Union, to a ground-level retail space owned by Amazon, the organizations announced Thursday. 

Just a few short steps away from the Amazon Spheres, the school’s new location at 2105-2107 Westlake Ave. will take up the ground-level retail space in Amazon’s 37-story re:Invent building, which houses offices for the company’s cloud computer service AWS. The new location will be Gage’s main campus, but the school — which is nonaccredited and doesn’t offer degrees — will maintain its Georgetown outpost. 

The move is somewhat unusual, as smaller art schools traditionally have taken over old schools or industrial spaces rather than shiny corporate facilities, though the school will have a separate entrance and facility. 

While Gage has worked with Amazon before, providing art classes to employees since 2019, getting literally close with a tech giant represents a notable shift for a school steeped in tradition and classical techniques. 

Gage will be the space’s first tenant: While Amazon’s re:Invent building opened in 2019, it has been vacant since. Representatives for Amazon and Gage declined to share details of the lease but said that Amazon would provide Gage with more than $7.5 million in rent assistance over the next 10 years (the duration of the lease) as well as offset a portion of the cost of construction and space improvement. Designed by Seattle-based architecture firm NBBJ, the space will include flexible classrooms, art studios, multimedia rooms and communal student spaces. 

At 14,000 square feet, the location will be slightly smaller than Gage’s current digs near St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral but will have roughly as much usable space and allow for more flexibility, accessibility and modernization, said Kathleen Allen, Gage’s executive director. The organization’s current building doesn’t have an elevator and, at nearly 100 years old, has started showing signs of aging. The hope is also that the new location will attract a younger and more diverse student body thanks to its central location and ample nearby transit and dining options. 

“The new Gage represents an evolution of our brand — more hip, more urban, more inclusive,” said Gage’s founding director Gary Faigin, who has written occasional freelance articles for The Seattle Times. Allen called it a “real win-win partnership,” in which Amazon helps Gage get into the space, and Gage can help the company “rejuvenate and bring a lot of great creative energy to South Lake Union.” 

For Amazon, the move comes as the company ramps up enforcement on its return-to-office mandate and stares down an antitrust lawsuit brought by federal regulators. 

Amazon spokesperson Zachary Goldsztejn said the move is a way to support “neighborhood building” near the company’s offices by diversifying the retail offerings beyond the restaurants, grocery store, child care, doggy day care and other services already present. It’s also part of the company’s larger mission to support local arts, Goldsztejn noted. 

Gage will join local record label Sub Pop and glass company glassybaby — as well as a long list of restaurants — in occupying Amazon’s street-facing retail space in the neighborhood. The company also gave Mary’s Place, a nonprofit helping families experiencing homelessness, a permanent location on its campus in 2020, but having a nonprofit art school as a tenant is new for the company.

Seattle’s vibrant arts scene contributes greatly to the dynamism of our region. But it faces challenges, including skyrocketing costs, real estate issues and ongoing fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. With support from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, The Seattle Times takes an in-depth look at the business of the arts and the arts as an economic driver in our region. We invite you to join the conversation. Send your stories, comments, tips and suggestions to  [email protected] .

Faigin originally formed Gage, then called Academy of Realist Art, with his wife Pamela Belyea in 1990 in New Mexico. In the early 90s, they established the school in Seattle to teach local artists — whether they wanted a professional career or not — classical and fundamental art techniques like figure drawing, sculpting and oil painting. 

The school has evolved since. Its name has changed, first to Seattle Academy of Fine Art and then, in 2006, Gage Academy of Art. So has its curriculum. While you can still take classes like “Mastering the Still Life in Oil,” Gage now also offers “Secrets of Digital Painting” and “Painting the Figure with Your Digital Tablet.” 

In its 30+ year history, the school has popped up in different locations, from Faigin’s Ballard studio to the University Heights Center. Gage moved into its current building in 2004 and had been looking for new digs for a while, as its building started showing signs of aging and the church had potential plans for the property . 

Also, Faigin said the school’s part-time classes have never attracted a young demographic in significant numbers. And its overall student body has decreased from around 5,000 pre-pandemic to roughly 3,000. (The nonprofit, which has an annual budget of roughly $2.5 million, also hasn’t seen tuition income rebound and will be fundraising to complete the build out and fund its new chapter.)

Ideally, this location “could start filling some of these holes,” Faigin said. He hopes the “Amazonians” and other downtown office workers, as well as people who live further away in the region and could come in by light rail, will be among those new students. 

“We want to make it super frictionless . I stole that from Jeff Bezos,” Faigin said. “I want to make it frictionless for these folks to walk around the corner and come in and take a class at Gage.” 

Faigin and Allen said the school would likely expand the curriculum to attract new students, including with shorter programs aimed at people who want to try something new rather than sign up for a weekslong class. On the table, Faigin said, were lunch-hour lectures, one-hour classes and partnerships with nearby Antioch University and downtown arts nonprofits. 

A change sure to come is a street-facing gallery for exhibitions by students, teachers and other local artists. The existing school building’s top-floor gallery isn’t very accessible to the public.

“We’re going to be able to have a high-profile street-level presence,” Faigin said. “And, you know, we had to make sure … Amazon knew that occasionally there might be a bare breast; that we do nudes.”

Even with a new exhibition space, how the local arts community will react is still a question. Relationships with the tech behemoth have been at times strained as some see the company as responsible for the city’s gentrification and affordability issues, among other things. 

“I think another reason that Amazon is doing this is because they’re aware of the fact that they have built up bad feelings in the community,” Faigin said. Still, Amazon was helping them out, and “I don’t know any person in the art community who’s going to have a problem with that,” he said. 

Allen sees this move as a way to connect the tech and arts communities. “I hope this becomes an opportunity,” she said, “where people who work at Amazon — or any of the other industries that are in South Lake Union — start to see how the arts can be so integral to your life.”
