Milne Library’s Book Swap
The Milne Library’s Book Swap area has been so successful that we are asking for your help. Have you noticed the bookcase in the front entry of Milne Library? Maybe it had some books on it…but quite often it is empty! Take a look around at home and see if you have some fiction that you have already read and are willing to pass it along for someone else to enjoy. It is very simple, the only guideline is that it must be fiction. No check-out; no fines…self service. Donate and/or borrow a book, read a bit and bring it back for someone else to read. You can leave donations on the bookcase or drop them off in the Better World Books™ box inside the doors.
Better World Books™
Milne Library accepts donations from the public to build our collection. Each gift is processed through GIST Gift Manager Milne’s own innovative open-source tool designed to manage and streamline library work-flow for processing gifts and evaluating materials. This data managing system determines if it should be added to Milne Library, put in the Book Swap or donated to Better World Books™. Accepting donations allows us greater flexibility, given our limited budget and it provides a positive impact on our overall ability to provide relevant materials to our patrons
