exvaxman: These things are awesome. I have two that I can walk to. They also tell you a lot about your neighbors. Sometimes I see awesome books, other times I find them filled up with romance novels.A round of shame to Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin for trying to regulate the things because "evil literature might be put inside". As in Rabbit Hill, the quote "readin' rots the mind" describes that town.

exvaxman: I have seen cars twice stealing books from the libraries to turn them in at (i assume) half price books for a couple of bucks. Both times I called the cops, and in one library now they request that you put in a small label covered by clear mailing tape so that HPB refuses them. A link is provided. A local hardware store will take books and put in 'Donated' labels for free and promises to get the books in the library within two days.The most awesome book I ever picked up from one was a book from the 1830's that was describing that year's scientific advances. The other best are from someone who used to live in Australia and loved local humor.
