What’s wrong with giving something away? Why do we have to donate it to a place that will sell it? (One obvious exception to that is the Literacy Central Vancouver Island bookstore in downtown Nanaimo. Great cause!) A lot of the, so called, “Thrift Stores” in town are for-profit businesses that are privately owned.
Giving books a place to live temporarily is a wonderful idea. This little library in a downtown neighbourhood seems to be quite busy. The little birdhouses that decorate the fence around it are an added attraction. I’m not sure who runs this little gem, but I thank them.
