      @ Michael Burjack: That's a great idea, and we'd love to incorporate it, but we can't. Unfortunately, after a reward tier has backers you can't change anything about that tier aside from how many are available. If we ever do a Kickstarter again, you can trust that we'll be incorporating similar ideas.

      In regards to the cost of shipping – we calculated the shipping according to a vendor that we already have a relationship with, but can look to other vendors for future projects. We had talked to another Kickstarter about their shipping details and they had found that they under estimated the shipping costs, putting them in quite a bind. Either way, as posted above, it's unfortunately not an option for us to change it at this point but we're working on a way to make the shipping cost benefit our backers - ESPECIALLY if they opt to pick up at their local library.

      Thanks for your advice and concern!

      How about including Canadian shipping by default in the pledge amount? I’ve seen other Kickstarters do this, and it feels more honest and transparent. I’d rather commit, say, $60 than think I’m committing $50 only to be immediately surprise-asked for another $16…

      …and on that note: $16 for shipping seems rather exorbitant :-) perhaps another peek at possible vendors is in order. I would expect half that, based on similar purchases and similar kickstarters.

      Keep up the good work! Cheers.
