making a difference, general and specific

I have some odds and ends here that I wasn’t too sure where to put. I try to do linkdumps infrequently. Here are some things I’ve come across in the past week or so that seem to be a few people deciding to improve something and what came out of that decision.

public library tossed out books, dumpstered book pix on internet

Minneapolis Public Library tosses books in dumpster. Enterprising blogger/reporter takes pictures. I dropped the library a note to see what they have to say about it. I got my favorite multi-volume set of the OED from a library dumpster on a good tip from a friendly librarian. [lisnews]
