Many Eyes traveling book collection
Born to Read proudly announces its very own LibraryThing catalog! All the books we own, for both children and adults, are now listed online using this website, which was started by a man now living in Portland. The cataloguer was our wonderful volunteer, Amron Gravett. Take a look around the catalog – you may be surprised at some of the nearly 700 titles we own! – and if you have your own LibraryThing catalog, please let us know so we can compare books.
Why should this matter to trainers? Well, we’ve always offered use of a large collection of display books to those delivering Many Eyes, Many Voices close enough to Portland that they can lug the collection around. The collection was catalogued in a spreadsheet. Now that it’s online, local trainers can pick and choose which titles they’d like to display, so that we can prepare a smaller box for them. Trainers who live too far away to use our books can look for copies in their local libraries. Find (and bookmark) this collection here.
