A friend sent me a link and asked me to sign the petition. I hadn’t heard anything about it. So I started looking into it. It seems as of November 1st 2019 Macmillan is limiting one book per City in their library for the first 8 weeks for a new release. New York City Population 2019 - 8.74 Million (estimated) Yes, they only get one book. This affects the poor, shut ins and disabled more than any one else…Like usual. I know it’s only 8 weeks but this isn’t good.
If they are allowed to do it…I am sure the other publishers will follow suit. It’s happening in Canada too. And I am sure it will make it’s way over to Europe and other places soon. We have a main library here with 3 other branches that service 3 very small towns. Does that mean we only get one book for all 4 places???
Here’s the research i found as I got madder and madder…
