MENTOR, Ohio — The Mentor Public Library is cleaning house.
Used computers and printers will be offered for sale at the main library’s James R. Garfield Room from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 23.
The cash and carry sale will be operated by library staff on a first-come, first-served basis. The money raised will directly benefit the library and will be used to purchase new computer hardware and equipment.
There is a limit of one computer per buyer. The computers will be sold “as is” and must be paid for in cash.
“We are cleaning house to make room for new computers,” said MPL IT Manager Andy Gunsch. “We want to do what’s best for our patrons. That means we will be selling greatly discounted computers as opposed to recycling them. We welcome the public to take a look at the sale and help us move out the old and bring in the new.”
