  1. They will be discarded or recycled if they are in poor condition or contain information that has since been updated through further study, such as medical or other technical or scientific materials.
  2. They may be sold online by TADL if it is determined that they have value in excess of $50.00. 
  3. They will be offered to the Friends of the Traverse Area District Library for inclusion in their book sales.
