Library-Loving Blog Challenge!

I'm joining in on the "library-loving blog challenge" that was started two days ago by writerjenn!

The challenge is very simple: For every commenter who responds to this post between now and Saturday, March 27 at 5:00 PM EDT, I will donate 50 cents to the Salem Public Library, for the first 100 comments.

If this post manages to reach 100 comments, though, keep posting! I could be persuaded to reset the challenge to a higher goal.

Pretty sweet, right? 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 just fine.

Note that my pledge is “per commenter”—so if a single person leaves 50 comments, that still only counts once.

You can do even 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.


In this photo from 1988, my older sister confirms what I had already suspected:
Books are pretty much the best.

If it wasn't for libraries, there would be no sexy librarians in the world- a scary thought indeed!

In times like these, every library could sure use the help. You rock!

Do Libraries really contain angels - or was that movie a total fiction? I like fiction because you can find alot of it in Libraries.

So I was in the crowd at the Endymion parade watching Wayne Newton pass by, floating above us all in VegasNOLA glitter, when someone shouted "Hey Wayne! Why didn't you call me? I didn't know you were coming into town!"
