Fundraising Opportunity

As television, radio, and newspapers have recently reported, the holiday shopping season is in full swing. Many of us prefer to avoid the crowds and the chaos by shopping online. There is now a unique opportunity to combine year-round online shopping with fundraising for libraries.

For all purchases made through the Shop for the Library website, participating merchants will donate a portion of the sale to libraries. More than 750 online merchants are participating, including Target, Macy's, Barnes & Noble, Circuit City, Sears, Gap, CompUSA, Eddie Bauer, Dell, Staples, Sharper Image, and OfficeMax. Check out the entire list at the website, shop from the comfort of your home, and help raise funds for the library at the same time. There is no charge to join, and you will pay the same prices you would at the stores' websites.

Join today, and remember to specify the Sodus Free Library as your choice to receive a percentage of your purchases. We'll report any funds received on this blog, so that everyone can see the benefit of shopping for the library.
