News and Announcements
The Main Library is in need of adult and teen volunteers to help us keep up with the demand for library materials. Assignments include shelving returned items, checking shelves to make sure items are in proper order, and locating and collecting materials that have been requested (think library scavenger hunt!). Whether you are looking for a long-term volunteer assignment or fulfilling your school service hour requirement, we'd love to hear from you. The hours are flexible! Information and applications are available at http://volunteer.ualibrary.org.
Treasure or junk? If you’ve ever wondered whether anyone would pay money for your stuff, or just wanted to know if your “valuables” are actually valuable, you should check out Price It! Antiques and Collectibles.
Using data from ebay, GoAntiques, TIAS and select Auction Houses, Price It! compiles pricing information on any kind of collectible you can think of, from toys and sports memorabilia to liquor bottles and cookie jars. Full of images, descriptions, and prices, just browsing this database is fascinating.
If you are a more serious collector, not only can you find descriptions and recent selling prices of items, there are also articles on repair, restoration and conservation of antiques.
