( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This is a great idea. Local libraries are constantly faced with limited budgets and can never purchase all the materials they'd like to be able to offer. Since prices on computer-oriented books add up very quickly, and computer books go out of date so fast, keeping an up-to-date computer collection is usually difficult.

Also, the more copies of a new book a library has, the more likely the library is to offer the book for circulation (rather than just reference), so people can take it home and use it.

And yes, you can get a tax break if you donate a whole lot of books to your local public library.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
