Come and get some books! (Wed., 9/24, 4:00 - 8:00 pm)

We've been spending a lot of time de-duplicating and honing the collection, in line with our "spaghetti-sauce theory of collection development," which holds that continual reduction makes the mix richer and tastier. So we've now got carts and boxes with maybe 600-700 duplicates and extra materials we can't keep.

Most of these are older books, and most of these you won't see elsewhere. Just a few of the many topics include: birds, old travel guides 1930s-1970s, sociology, geography, European history, etc. Some bound periodicals will also be available, as well as a bunch of Law and Order magazines and a multivolume "Index to Little Magazines."

Come to the library at 301 8th St (corner of Folsom), in downtown San Francisco, between 4 pm and 8 pm on Wednesday, 9/24.
