Subject: 	[SCA-WEST:8403] Books?

Greetings, cousins, from siobhan m.

I know you love books. I know I'm  in an SCA household when I see
the books there. Yesterday, while I was driving to dinner, I heard
that the Pendleton County Library in Falmouth KY, which used to 
have 30,000 books, now has 350 -- the rest were ruined by the 
Ohio River, which wandered into the library during the flooding there.
I nearly cried when I heard the librarian describe the condition of
the books -- and the catch in her voice as she said that they would have
to wait until they got enough money to buy more. 

I've got lots of boxes of books which are duplicates, or which I'm
not likely to read again, or which are too young for my children. I bet
you do, too.

I'm going to pack mine up and send them to this library, to help them
rebuild their collection. I'm also going to send copies of the books I've
written from my author's copies. 

Can I convince you to do the same?

Shipping by book rate will get the books there within a couple of weeks,
and isn't terribly expensive. But if you can't afford it, let me know,
and we can work something out.
