warehouses may not be organized by librarian standards, as we
are dealing with hundreds of publishers, and our inventory is
constantly changing. The books are stocked in broad categories
such as adult non-fiction, children's books, etc. You will be
given a rolling book truck so that you may move through the warehouses
inspecting the titles that interest you. We suggest that you NOT
bring a list of titles you are trying to find, but rather that
you approach our collection just as you would look through a catalog
seeking useful items.
You will be in a casual atmosphere, so wear comfortable clothes
and shoes. The price is indicated on every book so that you will
know the cost of each item. A Mumford employee will periodically
run a calculator total of your purchases, so that you do not have
to keep up with this and can avoid over- or underspending.
Our company has been especially commended by colleges, school
systems, and public libraries who are building new schools or
libraries. Many come here to start their basic/core collection.
