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!

Hello, fearless leader! Thanks for all you do :)!
This is a fantastic idea! My son and I go to our library all the time and I'm so thankful for it!


Wonderful idea! Thank you for supporting libraries. :)

Just Commenting!

I think this is a great effort! I retweeted and everything!
This is awesome! Good for all of you. I'll try to hit some of the others too :)

Yeah for libraries

Ok, here's a post. Nothing else interesting.
This is a fantastic idea! We're not allowed to donate money to our libraries, as they're state-funded, so it makes me very happy that someone can!

Thanks :D :D
Bonne idée!


Yay – go, Jennifer and go, libraries! (Thanks so much for organizing this.)
Thank you for doing this! I love libraries, especially since I don't have the $$ for books right now.
I love libraries! :)
What is your experience in donating ARCs to libraries? Do they readily accept them?
Some do, some don't. It's always good to ask before donating material to any library.
If they don't accept ARCs, you can ask them if they'd be interested in starting an "ARC swap box" where people can freely drop in and take ARCs.

Or, you might look into libraries for the incarcerated, juvenile detention, etc. They are often hurting for material, and they need soft-cover books.


Yay libraries!

Hi Jenn! I am commenting here and just joined in on my own blog. Thanks for starting this!
Mikki :)
Yay for libraries!! I will also cross-post.

Thank You

for all you are doing for libraries!
Hip, hip. hooray! It's library day!

coll : )
Wonderful idea! thank you for doing this! (came here by way of Martha Wells)
You rock for starting this!
Libraries are magical places.
I love libraries! I must be off to the library today! (My best friend used to joke that she deserved her own wing of our high school library due to how much she paid in late fees... she checked out so many books and never could get them back on time!)
This is a great idea.

Libraries are one of the few places where anybody can enrich themselves without payment in advance. The importance of libraries to a community can't be underestimated, and I applaud your desire to support them.
