Library gets thier books from donations, so they dont have an inventory. They often have to chase people for unreturned book, so its somewhat worst than a mom and pop shop. Just get a library card and borrow it. you can always renew it.

That might be true of some Libraries, but everywhere i've been they get so many thousands of dollars a year to order new books. Usually it's fucked up how the city alocates funds so a Library in the white side of town will get more while the library in the poor/black/immigrant side of town has old books falling apart.

Kinda fucked up alot of libraries have recently instituted this algorythm where they throw out books that don't get checked out regularly and only order best sellers. Library in my home town was stuffing dumpsters full of books. Shits wild.

did not know this, i know my public library features some best sellers, if they are throwing it out as trash i guess people can get it for free. i guess it depends on the state, that is not red.
