The “Love Your Library with a Gift” fund raising campaign is underway again. Now more than ever we need your support. When times are tough, people head to the library. Libraries are busier now than they have been in recent years. According to the New York Times, fewer people bought books, CD’s and DVD’s in 2008 than they did the year before. Checkouts of these items from libraries are up all across the country, as well as requests for new library cards.
This yearly campaign helps Mail-A-Book, the ALS Bookmobile and several participating libraries in raising funds to purchase new materials.
