A growing number of libraries across the country are adding Abraham Lincoln and Mexico to their collections. A dozen libraries in the USA received shipments of the book shortly after its release in September 2016, including the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois. According to Wikipedia, since its opening in April 2005, the visitor attraction has ranked as America’s most visited state-controlled presidential museum.
Other libraries that received shipments of the new book in September and October include Brown University, Georgetown University, Gettysburg College, Harvard, Lincoln Memorial University, MIT, Salve Regina University, Tulane University, University of Arizona, and the US Military Academy.
The first public library to add the book was in Newport, RI, and we’re trying to expand to other libraries. Public libraries can order copies via the Ingram distribution system. You can jump start the ordering process by showing your library card and asking them to order a copy so you can read it. The ISBN is 9780985774493. Let’s do it!
If you want to be a hero at your local public library, here’s how you can help. Public libraries welcome contributions of new books from library patrons, because some libraries have tight budgets. Just get a copy of the book from your local Barnes & Noble or an independent bookstore (or from Amazon), and take it to your local library front desk.
If you contribute a book to a library, try to get a photo with you and the librarian and post it on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MexicoLincoln/?fref=ts. Thanks!
