Help the library when you shop on Amazon

Ever wish your holiday dollars could go a little further? If you’re a frequent Amazon shopper, you now can do some special holiday shopping and make a donation to the Friends of the Charleston County Library.


Through the AmazonSmile web page, you get the same Amazon deals and the AmazonSmile Foundation donates .5 percent of the purchase price to your favorite charity. The Friends of the Charleston County Library is a registered charitable organization with Amazon, so it’s a great way to help the library without spending anything extra.


To take advantage of this option, you need to access Amazon through the web address – http://smile.amazon.com. You’ll be prompted to login and select a charity. There are more than one million charities registered with the site. After making a selection, you’re transferred to a page with the familiar-looking Amazon layout, and your shopping experience is the same. To make sure your charity continues to receive donations, you must use the special AmazonSmile web page each time, so don’t forget to bookmark the page.


It’s a great way to make your money go further and to make a difference in your community. For more information, check out these details about AmazonSmile.
