Re: “Libraries Trump Hate

My fellow library advocates might be interested in a plan for a privately funded national library endowment, which among other things would at least help cushion libraries against the stupidities of short-sighted politicians:

LibraryEndowment.org

Articles about our plan have appeared in the Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, Library Journal and elsewhere.

Sadly, the Gates Foundation is actually winding down its Global Libraries initiative. We need to reverse this via a multi-donor endowment. The .0000000001 percent could create it with just a speck of a speck of the billionaires' spare change.

Here is contact information for the Gates Foundation:

Educate Mr. Gates about our needs!
