From Jennifer R. Hubbard
A group of bloggers, most of them writers, are using their blogs, Facebook accounts, and other social media to raise money for local libraries, bookmobiles, and literacy causes.
Last year, this effort raised over $1600. This year's challenge will run from March 23 to March 27. Participants are pledging money for every comment received on their blog, Facebook page, etc., during the challenge.
To leave a comment costs you nothing, but will increase the participants’ donations, so please visit and comment on the participating sites!
Libraries have suffered in this economy like everyone else--budget cuts are affecting all levels of government. At the same time, library usage is increasing, not only because the books, tapes, DVDs, CDs, etc., are free to borrow, but because libraries provide so many other services--assisting people with job searches, for example.
