Friends Make A Rare Discovery

In among the dozens of hard and paperback books donated for the library's fund-raising book sale, the Friends of the Batavia (IL) Library found an autographed first-edition copy of Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged' . After a bit of research on the value, they auctioned it off for a tidy sum, $6,500, which they're now debating on how to spend for the library.

The auction (a total of 45 seconds long)was conducted by PBA Associates of San Francisco, who will keep a percentage of the profits. They want to spend this "chunk" of money on one large purchase for the library...here's the story on their find.

I'd say that library staff can have a killer holiday party this year.
