A few years ago the San Francisco city library moved to a new building 
which had one third the storage for books as the old one. Over half 
their collection was found in dumpsters and a great scandal erupted. 
They now have internet access instead, but all those books are gone - 
what was not rescued by the finders apparently got burned or 

Sad thing.
