Wolne Lektury nie otrzymały dofinansowania Ministra Kultury i Dziedzictwa Narodowego z priorytetu Kultura Cyfrowa.

To oznacza, że nasza trudna sytuacja właśnie stała się jeszcze trudniejsza.

Dziś z Wolnych Lektur korzysta ok. 6 milionów (!) czytelników. Nie ma w Polsce popularniejszej biblioteki, ani internetowej, ani papierowej. Roczne koszty prowadzenia Wolnych Lektur są naprawdę niewysokie - porównywalne z kosztami prowadzenia niewielkiej, osiedlowej biblioteki publicznej.

Będziemy się odwoływać od tej decyzji i liczymy na to, że Premier odwołanie uwzględni ze względu na ważny interes społeczny.

Jak nam pomóc?

1. Wpłacając darowiznę. Niewielkie, ale stałe wpłaty mają wielką moc! Z góry dziękujemy za wsparcie!

2. Przekazując na Wolne Lektury 1% podatku. To nic nie kosztuje, wystarczy podać w formularzu PIT numer KRS: 0000070056 i organizacja: fundacja Nowoczesna Polska

3. Zamieszczając informację o zbiórce na Wolne Lektury w mediach społecznościowych. Czasami wystarczy jedno dobre słowo!

W Wolnych Lekturach często mawiamy, że nasza praca to "czytanie dzieciom książek". Robimy to od 12 lat. Dziś Wolne Lektury potrzebują Twojej pomocy - bez wsparcia nie będziemy mogli tego robić dalej.

Tak, chcę pomóc Wolnym Lekturom!
Nie chcę pomagać, chcę tylko czytać

Compare also the apposite criticism of my expression „pure gift” and of all it implies by M. Marcel Mauss, in L'Année Sociologique. Nouvelle Série. vol. i, pp. 171 sqq. I had written the above paragraph before I saw M. Mauss's strictures, which substantially agreed with my own. It is gratifying to a field-worker when his observations are sufficiently well presented to allow others to refute his conclusions out of his own material. It is even more pleasant for me to find that my maturer judgment has led me independently to the same results as those of my distinguished friend M. Mauss. [przypis autorski]

Compare therefore Chapter XII, Division IV. [przypis autorski]

Comparing the frail yet clumsy native canoe with a fine European yacht, we feel inclined to regard the former almost in the light of a joke. This is the pervading note in many amateur ethnographic accounts of sailing, here cheap fun is made by speaking of roughly hewn dug-outs in terms of „dreadnoughts” or „Royal Yachts”, just as simple, savage chiefs are referred o as „Kings” in a jocular vein. Such humour is doubtless natural and refreshing, but when we approach these matters scientifically, on the one hand we must refrain from any distortion of facts, and on the other, enter into the finer shades of the natives' thought and feeling with regard to his own creations. [przypis autorski]
