It would be nice if everyone contributed a few books to the Noise Bridge library. We have quite a few authors in our midst and I'm sure they'd be happy to share their works. People would be welcome to come and donate or lend their books with the expectation they may never see them again.
We'll need an easy way to track any of the books we have. A useful project that may help with this is the distributed library project. It would need some work on the source code to make it functional again.
It may also be just as useful to not track anything at all and let the books pile up without an index.
