In 2018, Fulton Library was offered an unusual donation: 63,000 books from the inventory of a closed bookstore.  As this is approximately 1/3rd of the size of the regular collection at Fulton Library, several unique considerations had to be made.  In this presentation, Anthony Morris, Kira Buswell, and Shay Chestnut will discuss our experience with accepting and processing this donation, describe the lessons we've learned, and talk about building mutually beneficial relationships with donors.
