Library-Loving Blog Challenge

I'm doing this again this year to raise money for the new Los Gatos Public Library equipment. For every post  up until April 2, I'll donate 50 cents for the first 200 followers I get. 


If you leave a comment I'll add another 50 cents for that new follower or for the person already following me. Let's support our libraries. Be sure to visit all of us who are taking part in this great challenge. Here's a list:

  2. Libraries all across America are closing. It's sad.

    My young street kid, Victor Standish, stays all day at the library to stay warm and safe from the gangs. It's my subtle nod to the contributions our libraries in all our cities make to our young.

  3. It is sad that libraries are having to cut back or close.

  4. Such a wonderful thing to do, Lee. I'm fortunate our library, though small, is doing well. If fact it's doing so well it's being expanded, they are actually making more room! (The only hard part is that it will be closed while they make the renovations.)

  8. I love libraries. I'll never forget the excitement of checking out a huge pile of books every summer, to read up in our vacation place in New Hampshire. Favorite childhood reading memory!

  9. Thank you for your library love, Lee. I'm glad to participate. Ours is doing so badly, if people didn't donate books, I'm afraid there would be no new releases in the YA section.

  10. You're like a real life superhero. Do hobbits wear capes? Just curious.

  13. Libraries capture our lives in books ... they share ideas with the world of readers and make people of all ages smile. I worked in a library during my undergrad years on campus; loved every minute of it. A book and its home equals a library!

  21. Ahhh, libraries. Went to school in downtown Lexington and many days walked to the public library. (Now the Carnegie Center) I can still smell the musty stacks, and feel the excitement of wandering through a canyon of books. My idea of heaven; then, and now. Save the Libraries!

  22. Huzzah for libraries!!

  23. Wow, this is a brilliant idea! Our county library (L.A.) is struggling also, and our school had to lay off the librarian. So sad. Thanks for doing this.

  25. Hi Chandler,

    You don't have to visit all of those links. They're just there if you want to. If you follow me and comment, I send $1 more to my library.

    That's it!

    Thanks for the visit. And thanks to the rest of you who have helped me in this challenge.

  30. I am living in Costa Rica, a land without libraries or books in general. You are so lucky to have a library and most people take them for granted.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
