Umgqomo omkhulu, ozuba weencwadi zeCharity kwikona yeSafeway parking lot e-El Camino Real e-Menlo Park uphuphume yiminikelo ngoMvulo, nto leyo eyabangela ukuba abantu bashiye iincwadi kwiibhokisi kwipavumente ejikelezileyo.



Umgqomo kunye neqela elifana nalo elijikeleze iPeninsula kubonakala ngathi liye laba yindawo ethandwayo yabanikeli beencwadi ukusukela oko baziswe okokuqala kwiinyanga ezimbalwa ezidlulileyo. Kodwa abanye abaxhasi bethala leencwadi lasekuhlaleni bayazibuza ukuba ingaba iincwadi eziphoswe emigqomeni ngekungenjalo ziye kumathala eencwadi asekuhlaleni kwaye babuze ukuba zingaphi ngokwenene iincwadi eziya kwimibutho yesisa.

Nantoni na ehamba kwiibhinki eziluhlaza okwesibhakabhaka, kuzo zonke iinjongo kunye neenjongo, umntu unokuyibona njengokushiya uluntu, nayiphi na inzuzo yalo, utshilo umhlali wasePalo Alto uWinter Dellenbach. Umntu ufuna (anikele kwisisa) ngesazela nangenjongo, kwaye esazi ukuba umnikelo wabo uya ikakhulu kubantu abacetyiweyo, endaweni yepokotho yabucala yomntu.





Iqela lesizwe elingenzi nzuzo elibizwa ngokuba nguMthi wokuFunda laqala ukuwisa imigqomo phakathi ku-Epreli kwiivenkile ezininzi zeSafeway zegrosari kunye nezinye iindawo ezikuPeninsula ukusuka eSan Carlos ukuya eMountain View. Ngokwewebhusayithi ye-Reading Tree, injongo yalo mbutho kukugcina iincwadi zingangeni kwindawo yokulahla inkunkuma kwaye uzise kubantwana abasweleyo, iintsapho, izikolo kunye namathala eencwadi.

Kwiveki ephelileyo, uMthi wokuFunda unike abantwana abangama-2,500 iincwadi kwisikolo samabanga aphantsi e-Oakland, utshilo uMlawuli oyiNtloko we-Reading Tree uGina Zambori. Lo mbutho ukwanikezela kumathala eencwadi, iiKlabhu zamakhwenkwe namantombazana, iicawe, iindawo zokuhlala ezingenamakhaya namanye amaqela, wongeze watsho.



Kodwa umbutho uyavuma ukuba usebenza ngokusondeleyo neqabane lengeniso-inkampani esekwe eWashington ebizwa ngokuba yiThrift Recycling Management, ezibiza ngokuba ngoyena mthengisi mkhulu wemithombo yeendaba esetyenzisiweyo kwi-Intanethi. U-Thrift ulawula imigqomo eluhlaza, ephatha izinto zokuthatha kunye nokuhlela iincwadi, utshilo uZambori. Inkampani ibalulekile ekuncedeni uMthi wokuFunda ukuqhuba inkqubo yawo, wongeze watsho.

Ukuba le nkampani izenza njengengenzi nzuzo, okanye isebenzisa i-nonprofit njenge-front yayo kwimisebenzi yeencwadi, ndinengxaki ngaloo nto, utshilo uJerry Stone, umphathi wentengiso yencwadi ye-Friends of the Palo Alto Library.



Icandelo leSebe lezoBulungisa laseOregon liphanda ubudlelwane phakathi kweThrift kunye noMthi wokuFunda emva kweenkxalabo ezivela kumaqela ethala leencwadi kwelo lizwe, isithethi salapho siqinisekisile.

UZambori uvumile ukuba ubudlelwane phakathi kweThrift kunye noMthi wokuFunda bunokuba yingxaki ukuba imibutho ibingafihli nto ngayo.



Kunokubakho ubudlelwane obungacacanga kwaye abantu bafuna ukuqinisekisa ukuba akukho mntu wenza izigidi kunye nezigidi zeedola kwiminikelo yabantu, utshilo uZambori. Kodwa oko akwenzeki kuthi.

Malunga neepesenti ezingama-25 zeencwadi ezifakwe kwimigqomo yoMthi wokuFunda ekugqibeleni zinikwe izikolo, ezingenzi nzuzo kunye neminye imibutho, utshilo uZambori. Amashumi amahlanu eepesenti ahlaziywa abe yipulp kwaye athengiswa, kunye nengeniso ezuzisa iinkqubo zoMthi wokuFunda. Ezinye iipesenti ezingama-25 zithengiswa kwi-intanethi yi-Thrift Recycling Management, ukuhlawula iinkonzo ezinikezelayo.



Uninzi lweencwadi eziphinda zisetyenziswe kwi-pulp ziincwadi zezifundo ezindala kunye nee-encyclopedias azisafunwa, utshilo uZambori.

Ukufunda uMthi rhoqo kusebenza namathala eencwadi kunye nabahlobo bamaqela amathala eencwadi, ukubanika iminikelo okanye ukuthatha iincwadi ezingafunwayo ezandleni zabo, utshilo uZambori.

Kodwa uJim Schmidt, umongameli weZihlobo zeThala leencwadi lasePalo Alto, uyathandabuza ngandlel’ ithile. Iqela laBahlobo liqhuba ukuthengiswa kweencwadi rhoqo ngenyanga kwaye sivelisa isixa esifanelekileyo semali, esithi ke siyibuyisele kwithala leencwadi, utshilo uSchmidt. Ke ukuba omnye umbutho ucela iminikelo yeencwadi, sinesizathu sokucinga ukuba oko kunokulinciphisa inani leencwadi esizinikelwe ukuba sizithengise, wongeze watsho.

Asifuni kuthatha nantoni na kumathala eencwadi, utshilo uZambori. Ngokuqinisekileyo sinokuqhagamshelana nabahlobo beThala leencwadi lePalo Alto. Sinako ukubanika umnikelo, oko akuyongxaki kwaphela. … Siza kuyenza yenzeke.

Sekunjalo, u-Dellenbach uceba ukwabelana ngeenkxalabo zakhe malunga nemigqomo namashishini ayibambayo.

Uthatha izibongozo zethu ezilungileyo njengabantu, oko kukuthi ukuxhasa izinto ezingaphandle kwethu ngezixhobo zethu, nokuba ziincwadi, nokuba ngumnikelo wemali, uDellenbach uthe. Ukuba uthatha ixesha elifutshane ukuba uyisebenzise, ​​​​ukuba uyisebenzisa ngeendlela ezingajoliswanga ukuba zisetyenziswe, ndicinga ukuba imalunga nokuziphatha komntu ngendlela eyoyikisayo njengoko unokuzibonakalisa.
