Libraries Need Ron Paul's New BookSubmitted by gardeniabee on Fri, 10/05/2007 - 15:51
Yesterday I reported that Biden, McCain, both the Clintons, Giuliani, Thompson, Tancredo, Huckabee, Obama and other candidates have books in most public libraries across the country. And i bemoaned that I could not find one public library that had a copy of Dr. Paul's new book.: A Foreign Policy of Freedom.
I did a search today on a national book data base and found 19 books in collections varying from college libraries to public libraries. This is a drop in the bucket. We need to get books into public libraries. As I explained yesterday, the world of book trade operates similar to the MSM. Publishers and distributors promote what they expect to be the top selling items, along with publicity campaign notices of who will be on the talk shows promoting their new book. Until recently, Dr. Paul just has not had the national MSM attention that demonstrated a need to review his title in book & library trade journals. Thus it has not been brought to the attention of librarian selectors, nor to the "on demand" distributors who ship by outsource selection agreement with public libraries across the United States.
It is up to us.
Purchase online and donate to your local library. Let's get hundreds, thousands of copies out there for those that go into their local library looking for info on the candidates. Thank you.
Some libraries who DO own it are listed below:
