      A message from the Friends of the SFPL:

      The Friends of the San Francisco Public Library receives book
      donations from the public and sells them to raise money to support
      free programs at the Library. Not all books are saleable and those
      that aren't end up being recycled. These books are both hardcover
      and paperback, are on all subjects, range from old to new, and may
      be in good condition, marked up, or damaged. We are exploring
      the idea of periodically making these unsaleable books available free
      to books artists and craftspeople. People would have to come to
      Fort Mason in San Francisco to pick up books.

      In order to decide whether to try this on a pilot basis, we first need
      to find out how many people would be interested and what their
      specific interests are. If you are interested, please provide answers
      to the 5 questions below in an email to Byron Spooner at
      byron.spooner@... by June 30.

      1. Describe the kind of books you would want (e.g.,
      hardcover/softcover, condition, subject, or any other relevant
      attribute)

      2. What would you do with the books?

      3. If books were available monthly, how many times per year would
      you come to Fort Mason to pick up books?

      4. Could you come to Fort Mason on weekdays (yes/no)?
      Weekends (yes/no)?

      5. Roughly how many books would you ideally like to get per visit,
      assuming your preferred kind of books were available?

      Thank you for your interest. Once we review all responses, we'll
      decide whether to pilot this give-away program and advise all
      respondents by email.

      Byron Spooner
      Director of Book Operations
