A little donation can bring a great deal of satisfaction for people who are willing to give a book or two or three to the “Love My Library” campaign. Every year for the last decade, the Prince William County Library System has run the spring campaign to collect books that might interest library patrons.
“We have had a lot of success through the years,” said Jean L. Ross, an associate director for materials management for the library system. “We’ve had thousands of dollars donated to us. There are many things that would be nice to have, like extra copies of children’s stories.”
Ross said giving the monetary donations is easy to do. “For people to participate and be involved in this process is so simple. All they have to do is go to the library website where there will be a link to Love My Library. When they get there, they’ll see different choices. They can pick something they think their library should have. To donate, all they have to do is fill out a little form which they can bring into one of the libraries and receive a thank you gift.”
Donation forms along with checks or cash may also be mailed to any of the 10 libraries in the system.
Aside from the ease of donating, the donations “stretch” library dollars, and the money they receive during the campaign goes a long way, Ross said. “It’s a significant amount of material that’s added to the library.” Donors may also receive a bookplate to go on the inside cover of the books they donate.
