Did you know you can’t donate books to the library? Doesn’t that seem backwards? I mean I get it, you can only have so many copies of the little train that could in the library, but.
Here is our materials donations policy:
The Library welcomes donations of books and other materials and accepts monetary contributions toward the purchase of materials. The Library reserves the right to decide the disposition of all gifts received. Gifts accepted for addition to the Library’s collection become the property of the Seattle Public Library and will be placed where most appropriate. Material not utilized in the Library’s collection will be transferred to the Friends of the Seattle Public Library, a non-profit organization, for use in their semi-annual book sales. The proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales are donated to the Library in support of our mission, programs, and to enhance the Library’s collections.
So anyways, read The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind. You can get the book in pdf from the website, or send me an address and I’ll send you a copy of the book you can read and pass on.
