Submitter: I call this a preemptive weed. It was dropped off in our return box as a donation. Old, yellowed, and the spine is hanging by a thread. I know people mean well, but recycling is good too!
Holly: Whyyyy don’t people just throw this stuff in the recycle bin and let it go?? Is it laziness or do they truly think the library wants it? These are probably the same people who are turned off by other library materials that are in bad shape. You know the ones – a page is dogeared and they are incensed and want to be sure they aren’t blamed for it. This thing looks so brittle that it will spontaneously combust when “I didn’t dogear it” patron blows their cigarette smoke into it while reading.
