I've never held one before, but I want to try. This is the "Stock your Library" blogfest, and here's the plan:
We've all gone to the library before looking for a certain book, only to be frustrated because they don't have it, right? Well, libraries have so many books that they want to buy. Maybe that one book wasn't a priority. Or maybe they don't even know you want it. Maybe it's your book, and the library doesn't even know it exists!
Here's how you can help. On Friday, April 22, 2011, we will each send a purchase request to our local library of a book we want to see stocked on the shelves. Most of the time, this can be done on your library's website, so you don't even have to go anywhere. You'll want to check before hand that your library doesn't already have this book, of course. Easy, right?
There's more! Sign up for the blogfest to share with everyone else what book you requested and WHY. Then look around at everyone else's requests. Maybe there will be another book you want to request that your library purchase!
That's still not enough for you? You can DONATE a book to your local library! Don't wait for them to buy it, give it to them! Then tell us about it!
Want to play? Just sign up below! And tell all your friends about this campaign. Let's see with how many purchase requests we can inundate our local libraries!
