Let the Library Loving Challenge Begin!

This is a library-loving blog challenge!
For every commenter on this post and the review of The Secret Year between now and April 1, I will donate .25 to my local library: Mount Horeb Public Library, up to an amount of $100.
How easy could it be? 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.
Note that my pledge is “per commenter”—so if a single person leaves 50 comments, that still only counts once! But you can do 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.

If you’re moved to make a flat-fee donation to your library, or to start your own challenge, you are quite welcome, and please leave that information in the comments.
For a complete list of participating bloggers (and to visit other sites where you can help libraries just by leaving a comment!) visit the writerjenn blog at http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/

Libraries are the best! One reason: so you know you love the book before you spend $ to buy it.

I tweeted about the contest, also, so hopefully you'll get more commenters! :)

This is such a great idea! Kudos to you for taking part. I don't know what we'd do without libraries.... you know, I don't even want to think about such an apocalyptic event like that.

“When people who can read and write start fighting on behalf of people who can’t, you just end up with another kind of stupidity. If you want to help them, build a big library or something somewhere, and leave the doors open.”~Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times.

Thanks for doing the library challenge. I am impressed with how many people are participating. Libraries need our help now more than ever, with this tough economic climate, and all of the budget cuts. Like you, I have also written a review of The Secret Year, and I really enjoyed it. I am also participating in this blog challenge. My site is: http://reflectiverenewal.com/
