We figured up what it would cost for us to do this and sent them a letter 
saying what it would cost.  They cancelled the request.  Our info is in 
QuickBooks, so we would have to run 2 reports and "create a document" with 
this info, thus the reason to charge.

Shelley Williams MLS, Director
White Lake Community Library
3900 White Lake Dr.
Whitehall, MI  49461-9257
