So you can likely surmise that I think books are cool. Pamie is also cool. I don't read her as often as I should (I really need to update the old blogroll, and the design. I know, I know. Are you going to offer to support me so I can quit my job and blog fulltime? Didn't think so. But do think about it, will you? ; )) However, I was directed to her site from another link today. All the talk about community assistance blogging at the conference got me excited about the concept of blogs as a way of getting good news and volunteer opportunities out there, and she has a great opportunity to do so.
The Dewey Donation System is the coolest thing I've heard about in a while. In previous years, the project has supported tsunami relief and losses to wildfire in San Diego. This year, the post-Katrina library situation is bad, and this project is helping to restock Mississippi libraries (in the hard-hit Gulf Coast, i.e., Biloxi/Harrison County) with books. Several of them lost entire children's collections, and you know how important that is.
Check it out, and maybe tack a dvd or a book onto an amazon.com order and send it their way.
