Looking for Library Donation Service Propaganda

Hi all, anybody got a big old stack of scieno junk mail lying around with no good use for it? if so - i'm here to give meaning & purpose to that pack rat tendency of keeping a stack of stuff you dont really need :thumbsup:

a few months back there was lots of stir on the internet about the "Scientology Library Dump" re: donations being collected to dump boxes of basics books on libraries who in most cases - dont particularly want them. Back in May there was completion stats released claiming USA was 100% complete on this effort.

i decided to research it further for a future article (I'm nearly finished with) to be posted on my blog. Using online library catalog searches, i gathered the following stats on how many new editions are actually on the shelf & available to the public:

I'm looking for one last piece of material to finish up my article that will go with those stats... a scanned piece of library donation service salepitch material. I found an old topic up here where i can quote a partial email message posted that states they were asking $450 per library if I have too. But I'd much rather get a hold of a scanned image or two, so that i can show exactly how the donation campaign was promoted. anyone by chance got anything like that lieing around you can post here for me? TIA!

You may be interested in the "Didn't think they'd do it but they did" thread on this board.

yes i already have that bookmarked... if i cant get my hands on some PR easily, my fallback plan is to use a quote from that thread. my article is now finished and ready to publish, but i'm still holding out hope for a day or so a couple leads and/or this thread might still pan out with the real goodies :wink2:

yes byte301... waiting on pooks to get bak to a PM I sent her the day before i posted here is one the 'leads' i'm still hoping will pan out before i publish this first article to my blog.

and if doesnt work out this time around, no big deal... i am planning on releasing a followup version of the library search stats i compiled in 3-6 months, for a look at if anything changes. and i have no doubt once i leave this stew a short while, either somebody will get new spam on it eventually, or an anon-supporter will get their hands on "the big white brochure" on display in all the bigger orgs. its only a matter of time :whistling:

I just received this email, lacking anti-SPAM legal requirements (but that's another matter), regarding supposed positive statements from European libraries after receiving LRH book donations. If these libraries were contacted, I wonder how many of these statements would turn out to have been actually made?

Note: embedded youtube playlists are suffering technical difficulties as of the time of this message. so it's only playing the first vid on my blog and being weird as shit. if you wish to see the whole collection of vids and its still broke, follow the title link above player and watch the series on youtube. (sigh - so figures)

I also still want moar library donation service propaganda if anybody happens upon anything, i plan on doing updated stats and additional aticles in the future. hopefully my fantasy of somebody w/ a scanner getting ahold of the "big white brochure" handed out at the bigger orgs will come true in the near future (fingers & toes crossed)
