If space is an issue what about a dedicated space where people can leave or take books for themselves that BioCurious isn't interested in but might be useful to others.  With a limit of course so someone doesn't fill the shelf when full or help themselves to every book on it.

I fail to see how space would be a problem. For the price of an IKEA bookshelf or two we could put plenty of books on the wall, in the front offices, in the lobby, or in the back room.
