People looking to buy old yearbooks from 1977 may consider checking with a neighborhood library, the school, the school district, an alumni association or websites offering auctions or classifieds. School-related social networking and informational websites can also be helpful, since students might post memorabilia for sale.
Although schools, libraries and school districts may not always have an inventory of old yearbooks to purchase, they may allow former students to browse archives or make copies of important pages. Those who need a copy to permanently own can seek out former classmates, websites dedicated to the school's alumni or online auction sites to see if any used copies are available, suggests School Annual Publishing Company. Placing a wanted ad in a local newspaper is also an option.
