The SF Public Library’s “Bibliocommons” platform has a community-created list of 23 “Libertarian, Anarchist, Agorist”. All books, with the most recent listed being a work from 2012, raising questions about how dedicated the SFPL is to ordering new libertarian materials, and libertarian materials in different formats. Still, who knew?
While there are some clearly libertarian works on the list, including books by Harry Browne and Tom Palmer, and others whose titles suggest they are pro-freedom, I’m not familiar with a number of the titles and am wondering whether some of them do fit that description.
Want to weigh in on any of the books? The site allows community comments on each title. Feel free to post your remarks here as well.
You can also suggest titles for the library to carry, here:
Please let us know what you suggest! Others may be able to echo your suggestions.
There’s no reason to think this will incur any additional expense for taxpayers; presumably they already have a budget for new acquisitions, that will not be affected by what titles people request. As long as they are stealing money for libraries, it seems worth trying to make sure these facilities carry an ample selection of pro-freedom materials along with the abundant statist items in their collections.
Love & Liberty,
