Computer Book Giveaway
I'll mail one box of these books to each of three U.S. public libraries, no strings attached (although a donation receipt would be nice). If interested, e-mail email@example.com by April 24 with the following info:
Contact name, e-mail, and physical library address
One paragraph on why your library could use a box of computer books
A couple of subject areas you could particularly use (e.g., Windows XP, A+ certification, podcasting)
The three libraries selected will be notified by May 1, and I'll ship out the books via media mail in early May. Feel free to pass this message along to colleagues.
