Finding Treasures at SCARCE

"The expression "One man's trash is another man's treasure" is why I love SCARCE so much. Our school has not purchased new text books since the building opened almost 20 years ago. Thanks to SCARCE, I have completed incomplete sets, found teacher's editions that are no longer available, and gotten complete sets of books that I would otherwise have been unable to obtain."
