Pam Langston asked me to post this question for her.
I’m in a church now that has a bookstore rather than a check out Library. There still needs to be a simple way to inventory books and retrieve by subject matter. Any suggestions? ( i could get a scanner but wouldn’t want to print bar codes because the books are sold not checked out. I know I’d have to inventory what we have on hand and continue to add as needed. )
This is way out of my league, but perhaps some simple software for retail inventory instead of library software?
Another possibility would be to contact a church that has a bookstore for recommendations. I know Grace Community Church (John MacArthur), and Capital Hill Baptist Church (Mark Dever) have on-line bookstores, albeit rather large ones.
Our church is eventually planning to sell just a few occassional offerings, perhaps subsidized by the church. I haven't yet considered the 'hows' of this.
