Today we purchased over 2000 children's books. A large variety of titles and dates.
An elementary school in our area merged with a larger school district, hence the entire contents and school building were for sale.
It would have been fun to have purchased the building, but we didn't have a clue what we would do with it. It was in a very small town. So we bought the library contents instead.
Should you have a children's book title that you have been looking for let us know. They all have a school ownership stamp and/or library card sleeve.
We will watch for it as we sort..Sorry, no Dick and Jane's that we have found so far.

All are on our "to watch for list" posted above the sorting area.
We may be able to get a group lot of Dr. Seuss together..
If there are any special printings or dates, be sure to let us know.

My dream is to buy a school.

Convert some into living space and the rest inot business use - storage etc.

I search ebay and other places and drool over schools all the time. The thing is many school district require you submit your purpose for the building as well as a guarantee of how many people you will hire to work the business. They want you to put the town (or at least some of the folks) to work.

Congratulations! That's ALOTTA LOTTA Books!! Smile
It's still a shame that small town schools around here are soon to be a thing of the past. Wonder what they will now do, or have did, with the schools from the War Museums,
Seems like it is hard for the small towns to get and keep something productive out of the buildings, with the towns struggling to even be a town, it is hard for any of their businesses to flourish, let alone new businesses.
