Thanks to everyone who commented last week here and on blogs all over the Internet to raise money for libraries and other reading-related organizations! Because of you guys, I’m donating $81 to the Ames (IA) Public Library. Here’s me, giving the library a nice big hug:

Over fifty bloggers participated this year and Jennifer Hubbard is calculating the total contributed here. Thanks again, everyone, and don’t forget to show your local library some love!
