Michael Lesk tells me that the Million Book Project is running out of books to scan. They are looking for libraries that are willing to lend large numbers of books that can be legally scanned (tens of thousands preferred.)
This might be...
a) A library doing large-scale weeding of old books
b) A library closing down a branch facility
c) A library renovating a building with a plan to put books in storage for a year.
and if you happen to know of this
d) A large used book store going out of business (but with old enough books to be useful -- piles of Stephen King novels from the 1980s are not helpful)
