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!

This is so inspiring! I hope you keep asking for more comments!
public libraries are awesome.
How could I not try to nudge you a little bit closer to that 170 comment area? I had to, particularly since it's such a worthy and wonderfully community based endeavor. Thanks for kicking off the challenge!


Bumping you closer to your goal. ;)

What a wonderful idea!

THANK you for this wonderful idea. I'm on a fixed income and cannot afford to buy books any longer, so I use the library for my book fix. With the state of the economy being what it is, libraries are reducing hours or going out of business because they can't afford to stay open. I understand that this is especially bad in Pennsylvania.

Libraries are the greatest repository of wealth in the world





We just love the library...my grandkids think of it as an adventure! Thanks so much for what you are doing.

If you can read whatever you are curious about, thank a librarian.


What a mitzvah!

What a wonderful thing you are doing! Being originally from Philly, I especially appreciate your project. Thanks for being such a mensch!

What a wonderful thing to do! Will pass the word along. :)



What a great idea. Thank you for starting a good thing going...

I think I was 2 or 3 years old when I first got my library card. I've been hooked on books ever since!
Anything to support a neighboring library :)
Broccoli forever! Oh yes, and I love libraries.


I Support Libraries!

I'm a high school Language Arts teaching, and I can't say enough how important libraries are. What a great thing you're doing!




Excellent Cause - well done you. Nothing like a good book.

Yay for libraries! Great challenge! :)


I *totally* love libraries!

Doing the challenge on my blog too: composinglola.blogspot.com

Libraries are cool!

Through libraries, we are able to share the hopes, dreams, and fears of those who have come before us, so that we may achieve understanding, which we need to ensure a better future.

Thank you for helping the Fairfax County Public Library system. We love our libraries!
Oh my gosh, look at all these comments! There is so much library love. It warms my heart. Thanks for organizing all this, Jenn!


Yay for libraries :)

I don't know how I could function without my local libraries! Hurray for libraries!



Thank you for supporting the Libraries!

We live around the corner from the Oakton Community Library and we find it a safe, friendly, lovely, and peaceful place to visit and hope they get lots of support.
Thanks for doing this, and good luck!
Thank you so much for this great project. You are doing so much to help libraries!!!

A grateful rare book librarian,
