Jennifer R. Hubbard has organized the Library-Loving Challenge, inspiring bloggers and readers to raise funds for their local libraries, bookmobiles, and book-related organizations. Participating bloggers have pledged to donate X number of dollars or cents per comment on their challenge posts.
Consult the list of participants at Jennifer's blog and click through to each blog to leave your comments!
This is such a fantastic idea. I am only sorry that I didn't learn of it sooner, or I would have joined. I also wish I had posted about it yesterday, when I first learned of it, because the participating blogs have varying deadlines and most of them are this weekend or sometime next week. Quickly now -- Go post at their blogs and support their noble causes before their deadlines pass!
I further challenge you to visit your local library this weekend, whether you regularly do so or haven't for a while, and ask if they accept donations. Donations need not be monetary - they may need volunteers and you can donate your time on a regular or random basis, and/or you may be able to donate books to the stacks or to their book sale!
