This is a Library-Loving Blog Challenge!

For every commenter on this post between now and midnight of Saturday, March 27, I will donate fifty cents (50¢) up to a maximum of $100.00 to my local library’s children’s section: Gilbert H. Gragg Library.
 
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, share it on Facebook, 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/

May the comments flow!

“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.

What an awesome way to raise funds for libraries... The Local library is THE true community center and every penny goes back to the community via library services - from books, storytime, public computers to community bulletin boards. I will spread the word!

I love what you are doing to support your local library. I always enjoy reading to my grandsons, although it is not often. I know they go to the library a lot so any support we can give to the libraries is great!
