More than 40 North Texas libraries will be sending representatives to the NTLP office during the first four days of this week and taking away furniture, computers, and other equipment for use at their libraries.   The libraries responded to a survey posted by NTLP advertising the items for giveaway, and NTLP staff selected the recipients with the help of an online random number generator.

NTLP must empty its office space by May 31, 2013 as part of the shutdown procedure. NTLP's bylaws, along with the regulations governing the state-funded grants with which some of the equipment was originally purchased, require assets to be distributed to libraries during the organization's dissolution.
