You comment, I donate: Help a library today

This is a library-loving blog challenge!

For every commenter on this post between now and Saturday, March 27, at noon EDT, I will donate 50 cents to Cheltenham Township Libraries (PA) and 50 cents to the Free Library of Philadelphia, for the first 100 200 comments.  Update: I met my goal with 10 minutes to spare!  Thank you!!

How easy could it be? You comment, I cough up the money, the library gets a gift! If you don’t know what to say in your comment, “I love libraries” will do.

Note that my pledge is “per commenter”—so if a single person leaves 50 comments, that still only counts once! (Anonymous comments count, although they are screened until I can view them--but please leave at least a nickname or pseudonym if you use the anonymous option.) 

You can do even more by spreading the word ... please link to this post, tweet about it, and send your friends here so they can comment and raise more money.

If you’re moved to make a flat-fee donation to your library, or to start your own challenge, you are quite welcome, and please leave that information in the comments.

When you’ve left me a comment, please visit these blogs and leave them comments as well, because they are also donating to their local libraries! The more blogs you visit, the more libraries you can help! And check back, because I'll update this list as we go!

Help a Library

Hello from Pottstown (Montgomery Co.) Libraries rock! Just doing what I can to support this awesome cause...


National Library Week

How timely, since National Library Week is coming up. Thanks for helping spread the word. From, an Ohio librarian
This is such a great idea, Jenn! Libraries are wonderful places. I've posted another link to this on my blog today, so I hope it will help draw a few more viewers over to support your effort.

Hi there, my book lovin' challenge post is at http://www.thebookwormblog.com/2010/03/library-lovin-challenge

My donations will be going to the Koelbel Library in Greenwood Village, Colorado.


Why don't libraries get the respect they deserve?

Here in Boston we are also facing serious cuts in the library system--ten branches may be closed. It is tragic.
As a librarian - this is so cool! You guys rock!!!
This is awesome, Jenn. Thanks for doing this!
That is so kind and generous of you!
Donate that money, chica!

And thanks for what you do. I'm going flat-fee with my library this year; I didn't have the energy for a challenge.
Libraries rule! And so do you for doing this! Thank you, Jenn.


Count me in! I love libraries!

It's so great thank you're doing this! From a librarian, thank you!
Yay Jenn! Yay libraries!
Yay libraries!



I think it is great that you are donating to libraries!

I love my library! Going again tomorrow.


A Good Addiction says...

It's awesome that you've set this up! =D


Libraries are amazing!
I love libraries! And I love this idea!

I can't wait until I have a job again so I can launch this challenge on my blog and raise money for my local library.


This is such a great idea! YOU rock :-D.

I love this cause - libraries are the best!
