Records in the Trash at the Library

Stopped by the Champaign Public Library this morning to return some books; found a great set of swing records in the dumpster.

The series has been reviewed as "one of Time- Life's most popular sets, having been reissued at least three times since its introduction in the early 1970s." Apparently the library staff decided the best place for the collection was in the dumpster. (19 records in all)

Checking the catalog, it looks like you can find copies of the records at nearby libraries, which is cool, buy why on Earth does the library not have a "free" bin out front for such materials?

Anyway, if you want to listen to these babies, just email the head librarian at the Metaspencer Lending Library. No library card necessary.
