This is a library-loving blog challenge!

March 19th, 2010 by christine · 30 Comments · Creativity

For every commenter on my “Entice adolescent readers: Secrecy and social class divisions… this stuff never gets old!”post between now and midnight on March 27th, I will donate $1 to my local library: The Beardsley & Memorial Library of Winsted, Connecticut, up to an amount of $50.

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!  But you can do 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.

For a complete list of participating bloggers (and to visit other sites where you can help libraries just by leaving a comment!) visit the writerjenn blog at http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/

    We need to always fund our libraries. All children need access to them. Thanks.

    This is great! Most libraries are in dire straights right now! And can use all the help they can get.

    “When people who can read and write start fighting on behalf of people who can’t, you just end up with another kind of stupidity. If you want to help them, build a big library or something somewhere, and leave the doors open.”~Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times.
