Kickstarter a resource for libraries and librarians?

25 Aug

Woot!  Is school back in session, or what?  I am filled with solutions!

Are libraries using Kickstarter to fund projects?  I searched the site for “library” and got one truly library-related hit.  There’s a writing and publishing category, but it’s filled with people wanting to publish their books.

Does funding library projects contradict the “no charities” guideline?  Whether it does nor not, I think that rule is kind of dumb.  Maybe someone ought to come along and create a new and improved version of Kickstarter, for projects that benefit more than just the project creator.
