The Bexley Library has taken to auctioning books on the web to help raise money.
They\'ve been doing it for 2 years and have raised $1,800 by selling about 100 books online. The library\'s biggest items: two pamphlets and a signed letter from Booker T. Washington that went for $500.
\"They knew that they had some gems they were getting,\" said Sandy Lemkin, a reference librarian at Bexley Library. \"It\'s a wider audience that you can appeal to. When you\'re on eBay, you have wonderful exposure.\"
