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!

Thank you for hosting this, Jennifer! Not only is it raising money for a good cause, I'm discovering some very interesting blogs.
Libraries really are fabulous. I work at one so I know. :D Thanks for all you are doing.


Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah for libraries! :) Thank you so much for being so generous!


Can't live without the library!

Just returned from volunteering at my library, and brought home the usual stack of free reading and DVDs, plus three board books for my new granddaughter from the Friends booksale ($2.50). While I was there I observed two volunteers teaching English to new Americans, one teaching Internet skills to a new user, and of course the staff hard at work helping students with information and families checking out books. Living on a pension, I don't know what I'd do without all the services of the library! And there are so many others who need it more than I do.


Good Luck!

Go, go, libraries!
What a great idea! It would be fun to make this an annual thing. :) I would definitely sign up next time to donate too, just have too much going on right now to join in.
I love my library.

Great challenge, Jenn. I love my library, am there several times a week...



Thanks for your support of libraries, and of the Fairfax County Library System.
I love my library here in Seattle. Happy to support yours.
I love libraries! Good luck, Jenn!
YAY, Libraries!!
I am so sorry that I’ve been so crazy busy and out of town that I’ve missed this. You all are incredible. I love libraries too and you.

*Applauds loudly and wildly*
I've learned to <3 my Library! They are my source for Audio books! Y'all rock for doing this!!!!

Yay for libraries. I take my son every Monday to check out books.

Thank you! I've emailed you about the challenges that go past March 27.


Hazelnut Luvs Libraries!

I love Libraries and The Library Lion too!!! Gooooo Mikki!



Great good luck - nothing could be better than libraries, and nothing more important to support. They open the world, particularly to children.

I love libraries

I took my kids soooo often when they were younger; now that they are middle school, we still make trecks for special books and school projects. I hope they never outgrow learning through books! My 11 year old has been writing short stories for the last few years. I know she's been positively influenced by all the reading we've done! Thanks to libraries!
