FALLS CHURCH, Virginia - We proudly announce the launch of AdoptALibrary.org, an Internet clearinghouse dedicated to encouraging and helping people recycle used books and helping increase literacy worldwide by providing potential donors with a one-stop cyberdirectory of contacts of libraries and other reading programs that accept donations of used books and computer equipment.
has NO ADS
leaves NO COOKIES on your computer
asks for NO DONATIONS, and
keeps books out of landfills! TONS of useful books end up in landfills each year.
The website ends in ".org" just because it is not a commercial or educational enterprise. There is no group behind it that asks for anything - it's just a free site with links to existing organizations that help libraries and schools around the world. The web fees are paid by classical musician Lynn Gaubatz personally, and she does the web design and updates herself.
Lynn, recognized as one of today's most brilliant classical soloists, will perform a benefit concert in Linz, Austria on November 30, 2002 which will include the world première of a work composed for her by Fritz Berens, a Viennese composer who fled the Nazis in 1939. The proceeds from this concert will provide books for schools in India.

Named "One of America's Ten Most Outstanding Young Working Women" by GLAMOUR Magazine, Lynn has performed benefit concerts in the US and Europe to raise funds for the renovation of a historic 19th-century church and Carmelite cloister in Vienna, Austria, Musicians Against World Hunger, scholarship funds for a community music school in Washington, DC, and a group which aids in the nuclear disarmament of the former Soviet Union. She also created websites in both English and Spanish for an organization which supports the work of lay and religious persons caring for the poor, the aged, and the mentally impaired.
