TextBook Surplus Process

Textbook Surplus
DSD Librarians are responsible for the Instructional Material Removal service or the Textbook Surplus process. When textbooks are no longer being used, each school will determine what books can be sold and reused, or what books are too old or damaged and need to be discarded.  

If books are less then 10 years old and in good condition, the librarian will post them to be sold using the Follett SMS site. Any money or credit acquired from other districts or from Follett will go directly to the school library. http://surplusmanagement.fes.follett.com

If books are older than 10 years or in bad condition, they should be discarded by the librarian of the school by following the instructions below.
