I purchased a book online with Carlsbad City Library labels and barcode on it.
We currently don't have this item in our catalog. Our normal practice for library books we are discarding and routing to the Friends of the Library to sell online is to black out the spine label and barcode with permanent marker and stamp DISCARD on the flyleaf. Please check for the following on the book:
1. Is there a DISCARD stamp on the flyleaf?
2. Are the spine labels and barcode blacked out by permanent marker?
If yes, the item is a discarded book from the library. If no, it may be a missing item. If you wish to let us know you might have a missing item, we appreciate it, but there is no need to send the book back to us.
