I love Sagan. Also, I recently read something about the smell of books, and how the tree pulp oxidizes in such a way as to produce the "old book smell" bibliophiles love. 

“Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is how divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla absolute, subliminally stoking a hunger for knowledge in all of us.

—From Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez’s Perfumes: the guide

Interesting method... I bet the library community will be divided about this.

Good serious question!  Short-term myopic misguidedness?

Persuasion not publicity.  The larger the logo, the more the lawmaker is in the pocket of a special interest.  It's tongue-in-cheek.
