Replace the Vandalized LGBT books

$305 of $500 goal

Raised by 12 people in 4 months

A right-wing "Christian" activist vandalized LGBT books from the Orange City, Iowa public library. Conservative Paul Dorr brags that he took several titles and burned them on video.

Dorr says he will not pay for the books he destroyed. Our group, the Storey Institute has access to a few hundred LGBT titles in brand new condition. We'd like to replace the books destroyed with dozens of free books to replace the ones vandalized.  We will supply a minimum of 50 brand new books and DVDs to the library, shipping included.

If we go over our goal we will send similar donations to other libraries.
