The Browser!

As library staff members weed the non-fiction collection we regularly come across titles that we hate to throw away and wish to give a second chance at life. So, ace librarian, Tim K. created the "Browser" on the slat-wall of the second-floor elevator shaft.

As we find items that we think would be good reads, we'll place them on the Browser. If the book is checked out, it gets to stay in the collection for at least another three years. However, if it's still on the Browser after a few weeks, off it goes to book heaven.

If you happen to read a book on the Browser, and want to write a review, send it to as an attachment and we'll post it to Lost in the Stacks, a blog devoted to reviews of books saved from a trip to the landfill. Better yet, volunteer to be a regular reviewer and we'll set you up to blog your articles directly.
