"It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle."

—John Hoyer Updike (b. 1932) American writer, Rabbit, Run, Rabbit at Rest

 

ADOPT-A-MAGAZINE

Document Actions

Thanks to Adopt-A-Magazine participants, the library is able to offer over 175 magazines. Please help today by making a tax deductible donation towards any available magazine subscription cost. The name of your choice will be displayed where the magazines are located. Use your name, the name of your business, or the name of someone you wish to honor or remember. Do you want to donate at a level less than the entire subscription cost?  Donations of any amount are accepted and can be made online or at the Carbondale Public Library (see below). Everything helps and all donations are tax deductible.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A MAGAZINE THAT IS NOT ON THE LIST?
If you are interested in 'adopting' a magazine title that we do not currently own, we ask that, if possible, you first provide an issue for us to review.  If we decide that it is an appropriate title for our collection we prefer that the patron donates the subscription cost and then we purchase the magazine.  We also ask that patrons consider their ability to maintain the subscription over time, so that we can avoid entering a title into our database and then removing it after only a short time.
