Bloggers’ Library Loving Challenge

Jennifer Hubbard is doing it again. Last year she decided to participate in a bloggers’ challenge to benefit local libraries. It was so successful that she’s inviting everyone to get involved in another one.

This year’s Bloggers’ Library Loving Challenge is this week, from March 23-27. The idea is to open a post on your blog, pledge so much per comment received and then donate the funds to your local library or other literary organization of your choice. If you skip over to Jenn’s blog today and let her know you’re going to take part she’ll include your blog’s URL on her blog roll to encourage lots of visitors. While I’m not taking part this time, I urge you to either make your own pledge and support your local library or visit the participating blogs to comment and help those bloggers raise their funds. It’s a great idea. Libraries everywhere always need money.

    Anyone that hasn’t visited Jenn’s blog is missing out. I participate, but not based on comments (I don’t get enough to make it worthwhile – probably ’cause my blog sucks). Typically I donate books & cash – but I designate the funds for the kids programs, which are dreadfully under funded, especially these days. I’ll participate again – but will do it the lazy way.

    • Dave,your blog does *not* suck! It may be that not a lot of people find it, but those of us who do like it a lot. Donating to libraries is the goal of Jenn’s challenge and it sounds like you achieve that goal your own way, so that’s wonderful.

  2. Hi Carol!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog and for warning me about the spammer. I got rid of it. 🙂 I wish you the best of luck and many blessings as you search for the perfect agent for you!!

    Take care,
    Katie

    What a grand idea! I love to donate new Christian books to my library. It’s one way to witness to those who might never attend church.

    • Jeanette, Dave mentioned donating books, too, but for kids. I hadn’t thought about the outreach, witnessing aspect of doing so. Christian books don’t have a strong presence in libraries so that’s certainly one way of getting more of them on the shelves. Good for you!

    I’ll check it out, Carol. Not sure I can participate, but I’m definitely curious.

    Thanks for bringing such a worthwhile cause to everyones attention. I can’t do it this year, but hopefully I’ll be in a better position next year.

    Love your new blog look by the way!

    • Thanks, Christi. This “new look” wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for but I wanted something that allowed me to change the header without losing my other pages. It was time to exchange the winter scene for a spring thing. 🙂
