Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is traditionally the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. The moniker may have roots in the custom of how companies record business transactions: losses are recorded in red and profits are recorded in black. Many retailers depend on healthy holiday sales to turn a profit, and the Friday after Thanksgiving is often the date that merchants are finally in the black for the year.
Unlike stores that advertise Black Friday and the myriad pre-holiday sales to entice consumers to patronize their stores early and often, libraries offer customers unbeatable value every day of the year.
