Could I have gone to the trouble of selling all my unwanted books on Ebay or Half.com? Sure. But I would have only made a few bucks for all that work. Instead, I have donated 52 books in the last couple of weeks to my local library in preparation of my move out of town. See, the library here is a very tiny little building that doesn’t have a lot of books, so I figured that by donating a ton of books on sustainability, the environment, and “going green” I would be helping the locals learn more about how to help out our world. People in town will now have free access to these great books that I no longer needed to have in my bookcase, so it’s a win-win for everyone.
Sometimes the smallest things you do can mean the most to others, so if you live in a smaller town like I do and have books you think others should have access to, donate them to your local library instead of selling them for a few bucks. That benefits all of us in the long run.
