Find treasures at the asset sale

Post Independent
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

There are those among us who just love to find a good deal. Whether it’s a shirt on the clearance rack, or a puzzle at a yard sale, these items just call out your name. I know. I’ve enjoyed a yard sale or two (hundred) in my day.

Well, I’ve got good news for all you bargain hunters out there. The Library District will be holding an asset sale on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The sale will include items from all the Garfield County Libraries as well as fixtures from the former Rifle Branch Library and Country Attic buildings. There is a wide array of items including filing cabinets, shelves, book carousels, children’s furniture, tables, chairs, desks, printers, a TV, a surround sound system, and (of course) a Christmas tree. There are also building fixtures including: windows, doors, door knobs, bricks, lights, counters, toilets, sinks, faucets and cabinets.

In efforts to build the new “green” library buildings, the Library District is also looking to recycle old materials. The asset sale will allow the community to purchase and reuse materials from the former Rifle Branch Library and Country Attic buildings. We hope to sell as many building fixtures as possible so that they don’t end up in the landfill.

The Library District will be holding public viewings of the items on Thursday and Friday (Oct. 1-2) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can also view items the day of the sale beginning at 8:30 a.m., or call Wilma at 625-4270 for special accommodations. The asset sale will be a bidding format where bids will be accepted through noon on Saturday. All items must be removed from the site by Tuesday, Oct. 6.

If you have any questions about the sale or would like to set up a bidding account ahead of time please contact Wilma at 625-4270.

Emily Hisel is outreach coordinator for the Garfield County Library District.
