A tomb for tomes: Warehouse holds 24,511 library books awaiting dumpster

“Public library books are sent to the dumpster when they violate what some Lafayette librarians jokingly call the “three booger rule.” The term refers to books too soiled, stinky or damaged to be saved. The Lafayette Public Library will need to junk 24,511 such books this year. Library administrator Teresa Elberson used a battered copy of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” to explain.” (via The Advertiser)
