Library Lovin’ Challenge

23March 2010

This is a library-loving blog challenge created by my good friend and fabulously talented writer, Jenn Hubbard (check out The Secret Year)!


For every commenter on this post between now and March 27th at 4 pm, I will donate $1 to my local library: Cherry Hill Public Library (Cherry Hill, NJ), 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.
