I just returned from visiting the Library of Michigan and taking advantage of the book give away for both Hopkins and Dorr.  Although I took 6 bags of books, there are many many more!  If your able to drive over there, it is well worth your time.  
P.S. Thank you Bernadette and Susan for the help and for getting this set up!

Subject: [Michlib-l] Free books from the Library of Michigan

Hello – the Library of Michigan has free materials we are offering to the library community.  Please see the information below and the attached spreadsheets to take advantage of this opportunity.  Feel free to forward this message to other
 library groups or listservs within Michigan.
Content and condition
These materials contain new and used works of fiction and non-fiction as well as some legal texts and state government documents.  Most have Michigan content, but there is a variety.  Some materials are duplicate copies received from state
 government agencies and other libraries, or withdrawn from our own collections, but the bulk are extra copies of books submitted to the Michigan Notable Books program over the last several years.  These materials are both hard and softcover, generally in good
 or like-new condition, but older materials will show wear.   Items from the 19th century may need rebinding or repair, but contents are complete.
How to request
The material is available by request (email) as well as available for browsing here at LM.  You are welcome (strongly encouraged!) to schedule a time to select and claim materials on-site from 8am-5pm, Mon.-Fri. Email
bartlettb at michigan.gov if you want to schedule a visit. 

Email requests for delivery of specific titles are handled on a first-come basis by date and time and some or all of the materials you request may no longer be available at the point we receive your email.  Only requests for which we can
 supply NO materials will receive an email response.
The Library of Michigan has limited funding for shipping.  We will ship free for materials costing up to $20.00 per institution until/unless the funding is exhausted.  If your request will cost more than $20.00 to ship, we will contact
 you to arrange reimbursement or pick-up.  We cannot send materials via MeLDelivery, nor do we accept postage reimbursement.  Materials will only be shipped via UPS or Interdepartmental mail (for state government only).   *Again, we strongly encourage on-site
 browsing and pick-up if at all possible.*
Email requests must include the title as noted on the spreadsheet(s), a delivery address (street address only, no p.o. box), contact name, phone number and email address.  Emails should be directed to
bartlettb at michigan.gov 
If you are interested in any of these materials, please respond to this email no later than September 1, 2015.  Materials will be shipped as soon as time and resources allow. 

Thanks for your time, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
