A8 WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 25, 2009 THE ISSAQUAH PRESS Library: Used book business is up FROM PAGE A1 photography, interviewing and resume building. "With patronage up 11 percent, check-ins up 80 percent and the number of books on hold up 22 percent, that's an indicator that rather than going out and buying, people are checking out books instead," Bodle said. Klahanie resident Dan Hatch had a big stack ofbo0ks in front of him recently, many related to employment strategies and rsum6 writing. He admitted his wife Misty is the regular library patron. "But I just wanted to beef up on my r6sum6 writing. So, after see- ing what,Barnes and Noble had, I thought I d see what I could getfor free at the library, he said. It s great you can find special needs like this here. And if you can t find it right away, you can put it on order in the King, County Library System and they II have it here within a few days." Bargain hunters have been seeking cheaper books for 11 years now at the Maple Leaf Book Exchange in downtown Issaquah. Co-owner Greg Heter, along with his wife Eva, describes the amount of business in one word --up. "Typically, from year to year, our sales are up 10 percent," Heter said. "And I expect it to be this year as well." Heter said the used store gets all types of readers, "from women seeking thrillers to men looking for romance novels." His store has everything in between. "Unlike the library, there's no waiting list here," he said. "It's all first-come, first-served." In these economic times, Heter said that if you want to own a book, it makes good economic sense to buy it used. "And with our credit exchange system, we are actually cheaper than Goodwill," he said.

Robbery FRO1M[ PAGE AX Issaquah Fred Meyer grocery store on East Lake Sam|amish Parkway. By contrast, during the decade leading up to 2005, about 300 bank robberies occurred in Washington each year. We have seen an increase in bank robberies so far this year, with about 35 statewide compared to 21 at the same time last year," Burrows wrote in an e-mail. We had a 20-year low in the number of bank robberies in 2008 and I have no reason to believe that the trend thisyear will continue." She saidthe recent increase in bank robberies was unrelated to the economic downturn and rising unemployment. "The bank robberies have noth- ing. to do with the economy," Burrows wrote. "Almost all bank robbers in our state are drug addicts who rob banks to get money to buy drugs. Many of them are pre- viously convicted robbers or have been recently released from jail." The day after the recent WaMu robbery, Issaquah police contacted employees at the nearby Bank of America branch, 1135 N.W. Gilman Blvd., to discuss the inci- dent and provide the bank with ideas to improve security. Officers also talked to employees of First Mutual Bank, 855 Rainier Blvd. N.,,, following the robbery. We try to make people as aware as possible," Issaquah Police Chief Paul Ayers said. He said bank customers caught in a robbery should leave if it's safe to do and call 911. "We'd prefer that they try to be h,k roblery suspect a witness instead of trying to be a hero," Ayers said. Reach Reporter Warren Kagarise at 392- 6434, ext. 234, or wkagarise@isspress.com.
