I was thinking we could have a swap/free shelf over by the donations and 
trash!  So the swap shelf would be distinct from the library, which in 
theory, we don't take books away from.  And it would be a good place to 
put the 3rd copy of Learning Perl (or whatever), which is too nice to 
throw away outright but not useful to keep.

If you have ever done work with books, it doesn't take much to suddenly 
attract boxes and boxes of incredibly junky books. They fall from the 
sky. Then they have to be hauled away. So I want to approach the 
swapping, or at least the gathering of free books, with caution.

For the books in the library, I was going to scan them all into 
LibraryThing and then invite people to tag them -- especially to tag 
"stay" or "go" about anything they particularly like or think is useless.
