You CAN share the wonders we have seen!
When Farscape Canada’s library project began in late 2004, only a handful of Canadian libraries had Farscape DVDs in their collections. With the January 2005 release of Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, our initial goal was to donate 40 copies of the miniseries to the largest library systems in each province, with hopes that some librarians would also choose to order Seasons 1-4 on their own.
To date, there are 64 Canadian libraries carrying Farscape DVDs, including over 100 copies of The Peacekeeper Wars and nearly 150 complete seasons.
Can you imagine? A Farscape plan that worked!
Thank you so much to all of our generous donors. Click here for a full list of holdings.
What’s left to do?
Some Canadian libraries still have only part of the series. If yours is one of them, please make a request for the rest. Librarians are extremely open to purchase requests from patrons. Many libraries even make the necessary forms available online. Check here to see if your library has an internet suggestion page. If not, please fill out a form during your next branch visit. In addition, tell your friends. Anyone with a library card can make a purchase request.
Librarians take customers' opinions very seriously, so please give it a try. Request Farscape today!
Patrons can also donate DVDs directly. When the library project first began, librarians countrywide were asked whether they would welcome donations of Farscape. The overwhelming response was a resounding "YES!" All Farscape DVDs are gratefully accepted, whether they are single volumes or entire seasons. If you already own the series but are planning to purchase the new Farscape Starburst editions, please consider donating your old DVDs to your local library. Just let us know at Farscape Canada so that we can keep our records up to date.
Thank you once again to everyone who has supported the Farscape library projects both in Canada and the U.S. Each day, there are new Scapers everywhere because of your efforts.
If you would like to make a donation to the Farscape Canada library project, payment can be made by cheque or via Paypal. To pay by cheque or for any other questions, please contact Farscape Canada.
Our sincere thanks to all sponsors! Your help 'scaping Canada is much appreciated!
