Love your library!

This week, bloggers around the Internet are participating in the Library Loving Blog Challenge (created by author Jennifer R. Hubbard) to help raise money for libraries. You can help by visiting the blogs of participating folks and leaving a comment—most participants are pledging to donate a certain amount of money per comment they receive. It's that easy!

Last year, I ended up donating $250 to the Brooklyn Public Library, thanks to all the lovely people who commented on my blog. I couldn't do it this year, but wanted to help spread the word and encourage you to visit participating blogger sites and maybe consider donating a book or some moolah to your own local library.

You can see the list of participating bloggers here. Visit now—the challenge ends this Saturday, April 2!

Libraries are important! This is a wonderfully easy way to help keep them going. Spread some library love today!
