Hello! I just retired from 3rd grade. Two years ago I purchased a complete, curated class library for $3,800. and I was going to save it for my grandchildren but my garage is too small. So, I’m offering to sell it for $500. This includes the book bins. I live in Northern California (South Bay). Must be able to pick up. This photo is of 1 of 2, plus additional picture books in boxes.
