Subject: Another view of libraries
I have had this link passed to me about a library which is causing a lot of
discussion about libraries on the bookcrossing lists - thought others might
be interested in seeing this.
Anyone interested in bookcrossing.com the worldwide club for people to
encourage reading by setting their books free should check their website at
www.bookcrossing.com - I am a less active member than my sister who passed
this to me, and have more talks about books through this than at work now my
job has moved me away from the front line. They also post requests to other
members who have listed their interests!
They have interesting threads about libraries on their chat sites - on yahoo
especially where there is a British group. They are planning a big meeting
in Birmingham in July - maybe a few of us should go to try and get some of
the excitement back???
