"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Donate Magazines to Library Shop

The project:
Donate our magazines to the local library, which sells them for a quarter apiece to raise money for new books.

20 minutes to sort, 2 minutes to deliver

Why bother?
While we only have a few subscriptions (thanks, Mom & Dad), magazines quickly pile up around here. It's amazing, isn't it, how much paper passes throughout mailboxes? I don't see reading them and tossing them when our local library can sell them to another reader, serving both the reader and the library while delaying those magazines' return to the recycling bin.

Worth it?
Absolutely - lightens our load, and provides for other readers and our neighborhood library.
