Office Depot promoting library cards

Walt writes Library Journal sez Office Depot’s doing a nationwide promotion for library cards as “the smartest card.”

No, I’m not going to go into a rant about corporate-ALA tie-ups. I think this one’s a winner all around. From what I can tell, OD falls in the relative “good guy” category for national chains.

Office Depot’s also been doing a considerable good deed in cooperation with HP through this summer’s PC-recycling program: I know I was able to get rid of a 17″ display and a long-unused PC, without having to pay dumping fees and with the expectation that salvageable parts will be reused.”
