As many of you will know, I am very much in favor of Worldcons (and indeed all conventions) involving themselves in the local community. I am therefore delighted to have received a press release from Renovation talking about a project they are running to help local libraries.
Depending on the number of books donated, we would like to do two things: help the libraries refresh their genre collections and also provide several books per branch as prizes for enthusiastic readers who participate in the library system’s summer reading program.
Angry Robot, Tor Books and Baen Books have already signed up to the program, and Renovation is hoping that other publishers will follow suit. See here for details of how to participate.
