Library Challenge Closes

The Library Lovin’ Challenge is now done. What a flurry of activity here! And what a lot of fun. I know I enjoyed clicking on and reading many different blogs in the last couple days.

Here’s how it turned out:
27 comments by the deadline
@.50 per comment
= $13.50 for each of my two libraries.

 Because I entered this challenge late, I think that’s pretty good. But I think I will round it up to
$20 each
for the Bracebridge Public Library and the Baysville Branch of the Lake of Bays Library.

Thank you to writerjenn for starting this phenom.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment to help me in this challenge.

We all love libraries!

Library Lovin’ Challenge

Heard about the Library Lovin’ Challenge going around the blogosphere? Visit the writerjenn blog for more info. I’m jumping in even if I am a little bit late. But better late than never, right? I was inspired to join in by Ishta Mercurio over at Musings of a Restless Mind, so thanks go to her too.

So here’s how it works. For every person who comments on this blog post between now and midnight EDT March 27, 2010, I’ll donate 50 cents to the Bracebridge Public Library AND 50 cents to the Baysville branch of the Lake of Bays Public Library–two libraries that have been instrumental in helping me in my career as a writer up here in Muskoka–up to a maximum of $100 (or $50 each).

If you don’t know what kind of comment to leave, tell me why you love libraries, maybe even these particular libraries, or just a simple “I love libraries!” will work.

My pledge is “per commenter” so one person leaving several comments counts only once. So spread the word. Link to here, tweet this, or whatever, because more comments means more money.

If you want to donate to your own library, or to start your own challenge, please do so. Leave your challenge information in the comments to this post, with a link to your own blog. Then be sure to go to writerjenn and leave your url to be added to the challenge master list.

Again, the complete list of participating bloggers (and list of other sites where you can help libraries just by leaving a comment) can be found at the writerjenn blog at

Thanks for taking part!
