Ever wonder what happens to the books left over after the "Friends of the Library" annual book sale at the Grace A. Dow Library?

Well, they are destroyed. That's right, they are tossed into a city dump truck and hauled off to the landfill.

How about donating them to a homeless shelter or a battered women's shelter? Or even donating them to a smaller library that may not have the money to add books and supplies like Midland can?

This year, the head librarian had two dumpsters secretly hauled into the library garage, and then ordered library staffers to get rid of the books.

What a scandal!
no more donating

I will never donate another book to that place again, nor will I ever visit that place again.
