An attempt to save 350,000 books goes up in flames
Roughly 40 tonnes of history, culture and other types of literature could be going up in flames.
"I'm going to burn the books. Respectfully and in a mass grave, I'm going to burn the books," said Shaunna Raycraft.
Raycraft took in about 350,000 books when her neighbour died.
Last year, a big push allowed her to get rid of alot of them, but there are still about 200,000 left.
"I need volunteers to help save the books. I need anybody who's interested in taking books home to come and see me," she said.
She has set a deadline of July 6. She is storing the books in an old house on her property and the books are starting to do damage.
"We're not at risk of the house falling over anymore like we were last year but we definitely have to get rid of the books," she said.
Raycraft admits there could be some hidden treasures within the piles of books, but she has no choice but to burn them if she can't get rid of them.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help move the books can contact Raycraft by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, go to facebook and join the group Raycraft Book Collection, or you can contact her personally on facebook.
