Something new squeezed into my schedule this spring is volunteering at the library a few hours a week on Wednesday mornings. They are migrating to a new cataloging system but have to pay 20 cents for each title they move over so they are doing a really massive clearing of books that haven’t been checked out in the past 5-10 years. I’ve been processing a cart or two of discard books each time I am able to go in and some interesting things have passed through my hands. Some of the books go into the library book sale and some are simply recycled. There were a few treasures this week that I had to ask after and as they were bound for the recycle bin they came home with me instead.
