We go to the library every week, and I usually stop into the community information center to see what is going on.
I saw a flier there that I thought was really interesting. It is something that promotes celebrating special occasions with donations of books to the library.
You can donate a specific amount of money to the library so that they can buy a book on their wish list. You can buy it in honor of a birthday, a gradation, father's day, an anniversary, anything. They put your name and the name of the benefactor in the book, and then they send a card to the benefactor.
It's a cool way to give something to someone who already has everything and to increase the resources available in the public library.
