The Book Drop is NOT a Trash Bin.

The P.A.T.R.O.N. Award of the week goes to whoever dumped a whole bin of soggy, moldy, smelly "donations" in the bookdrop.

The fact that you actually handled these items when they were placed in your car, driven to the library, and then carried to the bookdrop leaves me to believe that you must be crazy to think that the library could/would find use in these items.

Detective Bookman is on the case and when the DNA lab results return from Tech Services you will be billed for all of the Purell we had to use after throwing your garbage away.


  1. That's still better than when a patron left "The Century Dictionary of English Language" from 1889 set, in a box left in the rain. That hurt.

  2. I just had to look it up at ABEBOOKS.

    That's a kick in the crotch for ya.
