I offered to donate (DONATE) my ebooks to my local library system and I got back a form letter saying “they couldn’t purchase these books at this time due to their policies.” !?!?!
This is the same library system that doesn’t carry Ms. Magazine, and when I asked a librarian about why, she had NEVER HEARD OF IT.
Lest you think we’re in the middle of “nowhere,” this is St. Louis County, MO.
I hope YOUR libraries are more receptive!
Best to you all,
Let’s start a movement!! If you write, donate your signed books to your local library and volunteer to read them. You get followers and future readers they get you in person.
If you have books donate them to small libraries that have so few and little money to buy more.
Get involved. Children that read get ahead. Ereaders are great but there is nothing like the adventure of going to a library and finding that perfect book. Take your kids get them a card. It is better for their minds and health.
Please reblog and share this post so we get the word out that libraries need our support. We don’t want to see a day when they are no longer there.
