Davenport Public Library throws out 4,000 books; other libraries do same

“When employees at Davinci’s Café in downtown Davenport step out the back door for a break, they have a clear view of two garbage bins behind the Davenport Public Library. The alleyway vista is unremarkable unless you happen to notice the content of the bins:  hundreds of library books. “They’ve been throwing books in the Dumpsters for at least the past two months,” says Davinci’s bartender Brittnee Kaecker, who recently salvaged two of the books for herself.  Both bear multiple marks identifying them as property of the Davenport Public Library and are in such good condition one would assume they had just been checked out rather than pulled them from the trash.”
