So here's the local challenge, right here at this here blog.
I'll put 50c in the kitty for every comment attached to this post which has a story in it about what libraries have meant to you in your life. If we hit 50 comments REALLY quickly, I'll extend the cap to a hundred - but for now I'd like to aim for 50 comments... but wait, there's more. If you're commenter number 25, you may also do one other thing. You may nominate a library of your choice - school library, or a general library - and I will send them a set of the Worldweavers books. Signed. With a commemoration certificate as to why they got them, and who made sure that they did.
You want to play?... have at it. Comments are open... NOW.
