Finally, Another Freethought Library Update!
February 29, 2012
It’s been a while since our last update, but the Freethought Library project continues. Exciting news, too—we’re up to 72 books! Several of these books came from our awesome membership (thanks guys!), but we’d especially like to thank American Atheists for their generous contribution (I’m particularly excited about the many copies of the X-Rated Bible). Your support means the world to us!
Here’s an updated timeline of our progress:
Pretty cool, right? Of course, we’re growing more ambitious with each passing day. Our updated wishlist is below. If you happen to have copies of any of the following books to spare, please consider donating them. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or give what you can to the Freethought Library fund and help make our dreams a reality!
