OUR GOALS FOR 2015
We have spent most of January budgeting and calculating, which leads to the conclusion that we must speed up our publication rate. The backlog is getting bigger and bigger, and we could refuse donated publications and not acquire books anymore, but that's against our mission. So, getting more publications online is the best way to go. Our intentions:
We rely on volunteers first and foremost, but there's things that we can't find a volunteer for, such as the ongoing job of securing our websites and databases against hackers and people who want to use the site to spread malware. So there's some additional goals
Our current financial situation as of 3rd of February, 2015
Even though we could not publish much due to other work, some people kept donating! Thank you for your continued trust and enjoy the new publications. Anybody wanting to donate, welcome! By all means! There's a limit (currently about USD 600) to what you can donate per year and still have it count towards the small donations. It's recalculated every year and if there are a lot of donations, maybe more than once a year. If you donate more, the IRS leaves your donations out of the shortfall ratio. So, if you were planning to donate 602 USD, buy a cup of coffee and donate USD 600 ;-) And introducing the Library to people who don't know of it yet, is very useful, since it broadens our user base and therefore our donor base.
Remember all those treasures of the past, hidden, unappreciated, in libraries, moldering on attics, thoughtlessly discarded, never to be seen and used again, unless we get them online. You're not just saving our nonprofit status, or even investing in next week's free patterns. You are connecting the past to the future.
