  • Thanks for sharing the values of a library, Damone. I am helping out at a library for children in my community so I can appreciate these points. Most of the books we have were donated by residents of the community whose children have outgrown the books they have collected. This beats recycling them for paper as there are children whose parents cannot afford to buy or are not keen to buy them books to read.
