All the unsold books eventually get dumped into the recycling bins outside the school on the curb. Many students decide not buy books they want and later go search for them in the bins. A large amount of books (100 to 150) in useable condition were thrown out after our last sale. I find it appalling that our school would simply discard these books and not donate them to our own library for circulation or a good will shop. I encourage everyone to support the drama department but at the same time speak out against this waste.
Also, I thought I might add that a Hindu friend of mine was deeply offended by the destruction of so many books. To my understanding the Hindu faith teaches that you must have respect for written material or you would offend the God of literature, Devi Saraswati.
