Finishing up First Fridays, sweeping the last of the people out now.
Gave away quite a stack of books from the cart. Although there were periods of no one, it was fairly busy most of the night. The littles were a menace as usual, but not that bad, and at least parents were paying attention this month. No one noticed the castle of books in the window, guess it wasn't as good as all that.
Hubbell was here.
We shelved a stack of Modern Fiction Firsts, and some vintage Art books, and a scattering of other titles.
Summer Youth one called in sick other a no show.
